These are the most turbulent economic times in more than a generation. Political turbulence also reigns with the newly elected presidential administration bringing to Washington a new set of radically different policies.
Stephen Moore’s presentation provides audiences with an inside look at how the economic policy and political decisions in Washington impact the financial outlook for investors. Increasingly, Fed policies, congressional budget policies, Washington tax policies and bailouts have a profound impact on the stock market and the nation’s economic growth path. Shrewd investors can no longer ignore the policy outlook. The presentation provides interesting graphics and is interspersed with humorous tales about the inside story of how Washington really works (and in most cases, doesn’t) provided by a 20 year veteran of inside the beltway policy making. This presentation discusses how economic policy changes in the past 20 years have effected the markets and how changes in the years ahead—from the Bush tax cuts to Social Security and health care reforms—will influence the financial scene in the U.S and abroad over the next decade.
