Prosperity Ahead — or Not?

There have been wild swings in the stock market, yet continued data show the economy is strong. Unemployment is at 30-year low. Manufacturing and small business optimism is strong. Where is the economy headed? Can the new tax cuts prod the economy to roar ahead, despite worldwide worries over Brexit and trade disputes? Will the Fed keep its independence? Will the U.S. build up bigger and bigger debts without tackling entitlements? What’s at stake for the economy, the financial markets, and geopolitics, amid foreign policy crises in Syria, Ukraine, Venezuela, and China? Can we continue the growth we’ve seen in the last year? Can we continue on this path to prosperity?

By “connecting the dots” of the world economy, Todd Buchholz will inspire Management Forum attendees and help them develop a timely vision for the economy, the financial markets, and the dramatic impact of the 2016 presidential election.

Buchholz served at the White House under the George H.W. Bush Administration as a director for economic policy from 1989 to 1992. He also brings his experience as a managing director of the $15 billion Tiger hedge fund and a Harvard economics teacher to the cutting edge of economics, fiscal politics, finance, and business strategy. His just-released book The Price of Prosperity is ranked #1 on Amazon for government and received rave reviews from advisors to Donald Trump, as well as from Hillary Clinton
