As President Trump tries to negotiate with Republicans and with Democrats, meeting planners must grapple with crucial questions: Will the economy continue to grow, and will corporate earnings improve, providing the wherewithal for more corporate meeting activity? Can the Federal Reserve Board prod the economy to recover, while nudging interest rates higher? Will the president’s “get-tough” attitude with China, Mexico, and Canada impede international commerce and travel? Will energy prices stay in a comfortable zone or will OPEC re-establish its market power and drive prices higher? Todd Buchholz has delivered keynotes at the White House, Treasury Department, UK Parliament, as well as the Mexican and Abu Dhabi stock exchanges. His recently-released book The Price of Prosperity was named a “must-read” by the Wall Street Journal and received strong reviews from top advisors to both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. By “connecting the dots” of the world economy, Todd will help you develop a timely vision for the economy, the financial markets, and the political challenges ahead.
