Steven Weber works at the intersection of technology markets, intellectual property regimes, and international politics. His research, teaching, and advisory work focus on the political economy of knowledge intensive industries, with special attention to health care, information technology, software, and global political economy issues relating to competitiveness. He is also a frequent contributor to scholarly and public debates on international relations and US foreign policy. One of the world’s most expert practitioners of scenario planning, Steven has worked with over a hundred companies and organizations to develop this discipline as a strategy planning tool from line businesses to the C-suite. He served as special consultant to the president of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and has held academic fellowships with the Council on Foreign Relations and the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences, and was Director of the Institute of International Studies at UC Berkeley from 2003 to 2009. He now directs the Center for Long Term Cybersecurity at Berkeley. Over the last 20 years Weber has advised global companies, government agencies, and non-profit organizations around the world on risk analysis, strategy, and business forecasting in the areas of international political risk, technology, and global economic change. His books include The Success of Open Source and most recently The End of Arrogance: America in the Global Competition of Ideas (co-authored with Bruce Jentleson) and Deviant Globalization: Black Market Economy in the 21st Century (co-authored with Jesse Goldhammer and Nils Gilman). He is currently working on a new book, Beyond the Globally Integrated Enterprise, which explains how economic geography is evolving and the consequences for multinational organizations in the post financial crisis world.
