Speech Topics

The Current Economy and the Great Depression: A comparison

The Continued Failure of Employment Recovery

The Economic Outlook

This presentation will focus on the U.S. economy, and how the economy will evolve in response to policy and global economic and political forces. I will assess the prospects for economic growth, whether the recovery will likely expand in the coming months, or whether a "double-dip" recession is possible, how federal reserve policy and fiscal policy are affecting the economy, and whether inflation is poised to increase. I will also discuss international economic forces, including the European debt crisis, and the rise of emerging economies such as China and Brazil, and their impact on the U.S. economy. The presentation can tie this into broader implications for asset management if that is of interest.
