Arriving Today: From Factory to Front Door


Christopher Mims, technology columnist at The Wall Street Journal

About the Lecture

Grab a seat for a gripping lecture with Christopher Mims, award-winning technology columnist for The Wall Street Journal, as he examines how everything we buy keeps getting more expensive – if it’s available at all, and why the ever-longer supply chains we’ve built to be as cheap and efficient as possible are breaking.

Hear how they work or have worked and how they might change in the future. Mims will share his eye-opening investigation into the new rules of online commerce, supply chain management, and transportation. See just how complex the promise “Arriving Today” really is! Attendees are welcome to send comments or questions to Christopher, and he will answer following the lecture. 

A book signing follows the Q&A.
