Jeff Immelt (Exclusively WSB)

As the former President and CEO of GE Healthcare, Jeff Immelt has long believed that healthcare must be married to technology. He understands the major dynamics of today’s marketplace: the desire to better link consumers and providers, the rising costs as people live longer, and the increasing need for payment reform. He articulates how these are further complicated by political instability and regular disruption. Immelt offers audiences unparalleled insight into the future of the industry—and explains how decisions made in Washington will impact business writ large.  

Ron Insana (Exclusively WSB)

For several years, Ron Insana has been touting the rise of “Fortress America,” even as others have heralded the emergence of the Asian Century. The Fortress appears to have some cracks, as radical shifts in U.S. foreign, fiscal, and regulatory policies could make it less impregnable than ever before.

With the gutting of the U.S. diplomatic corps, the American withdrawal from—or renegotiation of—key multilateral agreements, from the Paris Climate Accord to TPP to NAFTA, the United States is risking its leadership position in the world, its ability to aid its allies, and its credibility in admonishing its adversaries. While the elimination of costly regulations has been a boon to businesses and stock prices, the long-term consequences of these changes are not yet known.

What happens if the pillars of Fortress America—energy independence, manufacturing, technological innovation, demographic and political stability—begin to weaken? Ron Insana explores how the shifting domestic and global political environments could strain the economy, disrupt certain industries, and affect financial markets in the relatively near future.

Ron Insana (Exclusively WSB)

The world has gone almost seven years without a major event roiling the financial markets. That’s an unusually long time for stocks to go without falling at least 20% or more. Since 1987, markets have experienced a so-called “Seven Sigma,” “Black Swan,” or similarly unexpected event about every two to three years. However, the U.S. market, for its part, has not even seen a 3% pullback in a full year, an unprecedented stretch of rising stock prices and extraordinarily low volatility. History has shown us that such conditions rarely last that long.

In this riveting presentation, Ron Insana explores several different scenarios in which the economy, businesses, and markets could get rocked by unexpected events, including:  

  • The economy in overdrive
  • A fight at the Fed
  • From Kim to Khameini, the risk of war
