Since the Sons of Liberty threw casks of tea into the Boston Harbor, taxation has been a hot topic for Americans. President Obama has promised to pursue a very specific approach regarding tax policies based on advice from a litany of renowned experts with substantial economic experience. So, what will the president’s plan mean for you, your organization and the country? Martin Feldstein, who has been called one of the ten best economists in the world and stands as an economic research pioneer. In this compelling presentation, he reviews:

  • What initiatives are likely to produce jobs, increase wages and investment in business
  • How tax policy may impact healthcare
  • Fact versus fiction in the tax debate

Savvy economists saw it coming. The bubble in the housing prices, high loan to value ratio for millions of homeowners and the manner in which mortgages were securitized was not a formula for long-term economic success. The result was household wealth degradation and destruction of capital financial institutions that hold mortgages and mortgage-backed securities. While the country hopes that recent financial rescue plans will bring back the confidence needed to revive the financial system, has the root of the problem been addressed and where do we go from here? In this revealing presentation customized for your organization from one of the world’s leading economists, Martin Feldstein, the George F. Baker Professor of Economics at Harvard University, shares:

  • Insights into the current, and complex, economic dynamics
  • What results we can expect from recent congressional and federal government initiatives
  • What initiatives will get the economy back on track

Jason Furman (Exclusively WSB)

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) remained at the forefront of the U.S. legislative and political conversation for the duration of President Obama’s two terms in office. A leader in the development and negotiation of the ACA, Jason Furman answers the question on everyone’s mind as the Trump Administration moves forward with plans for repeal and a commitment to eventual replacement: What will these changes mean for me? At the same time, health-care delivery systems nationwide are undergoing major changes as providers are increasingly being paid for value and savings, not just for duplicative care, contributing to a dramatic slowdown in health spending. In this timely and important discussion, Furman provides experienced analysis on the future of health-care reform and the economic implications of repeal.
