Robert Gates (Exclusively WSB)

In this presentation, Dr. Gates shares his views about the most pressing threats to global stability and America’s security. He focuses on his experience dealing with these issues as defense secretary under presidents Bush and Obama—an experience recounted vividly in his recent best-selling book, Duty.  He draws heavily on his memoir sharing his views on the way America's government—White House, cabinet agencies, and Congress—works, and too often does not work. We face one of the most complex, dangerous and uncertain international environments today. From rising military tensions with Russia and China, multiple conflicts in the Middle East and the threat of ISIS, to dicey trade relations and economic challenges confronting Europe, Dr. Gates foresees a generation of conflict, and predicts we will continue to face the most challenging international environment since the Cold War for some time to come.

Austan Goolsbee (Exclusively WSB)

Why does the global economic recovery seem to be taking one step forward and a half step back and not coming back more quickly? Austan Goolsbee, former Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers of the United States draws on his recent policy experience to examine the problems and the opportunities that lie ahead for the U.S. economy, global growth and the ways the dysfunction of policy makers has complicated the road back.  Providing a candid and holistic analysis, Goolsbee notes the factors likely to determine the strength and duration of the recovery, and how those key indicators at home—exports, innovation, housing, business capital spending, energy prices and the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy— and abroad—the Eurozone debt crisis, currency wars and uncertainty in emerging markets—will impact growth and the prospects for sustained recovery.

Austan Goolsbee (Exclusively WSB)

With jobs, taxes, deficits and spending dominating the headlines, it is clear that political and economic issues are now more intertwined than at any time in recent history. A renowned economist who has extensive experience working in and around politics—most notably as Chairman of the President's Council of Economic Advisers,  Austan Goolsbee understands both the economic and political realities that face both the President and Congress.  An analyst for ABC News and sought-after by the media for his views on the politics of economics and his clear style, Goolsbee thoughtfully examines the industries, groups and geographies that will be doing better or worse in 2017 and beyond—and what this means for future elections and policy outcomes for the President, the Senate and the House. Taxes, trade, regulatory, financial and energy policies are all at stake and Goolsbee shows just what this means for America moving forward.

Alan Greenspan (Exclusively WSB)

In an intimate and thoughtful conversation, Alan Greenspan, former chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, offers candid, in-depth and thorough responses to audience's questions about the world economy.
