Democracy and capitalism tend to strengthen each other, across countries and over time, but not always. Dr. Raghuram Rajan describes the peculiar confluence of forces that are causing a wedge between democratic forces and markets today and why this is being expressed in the political movements we see. He argues that to preserve what is good in the global system of trade and finance, we need countries, especially large emerging markets, to step up and take leadership to move the dialogue forward. At the same time, industrial countries have to pay attention to domestic political demands to slow, or reverse, globalization and find ways to make angry citizens less anxious about the future. Dr. Rajan will discuss some policy options that could address these wide-ranging and impactful issues.

U.S. wages are at their lowest level in more than 20 years and workers are growing tired of a stagnant economy. Globalization, coupled with structural economic changes, have created an environment that often rewards capital at a greater rate than it does labor – and workers around the world are, increasingly, saying “enough!” From Brexit to the U.S. election, middle class workers are making their voices heard. Trish Regan examines the policies that need to be enacted now to help change the fate of U.S. workers and strengthen our middle class, while simultaneously encouraging companies to invest in the world’s greatest economy.

The digital sun never sets. It will only get hotter. Every day, through the internet of everything, we generate more data and share more information about ourselves with other individuals, corporations and government. How much access should government have to this information to protect you from criminals, predators and terrorists? Are rights to privacy and security exclusive to one another? Join Tom Ridge, America’s first Secretary of Homeland Security, for this timely discussion about the critical choices we face when technology, civil liberties and security collide.

It's a fact: Federal spending will rise rapidly in the next few years for Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. These programs are already more than 40% of federal spending and are rising faster than every other budget line except interest on the debt. Clearly, costs of this kind simply cannot be sustained, and even though health care reform has passed, there are still further political, social and electoral implications. What's the solution? What must be done before three of the country's most important programs become too unwieldy to repair or altogether insolvent? Visionary thinker Alice Rivlin, former vice chair of the Federal Reserve Board tackles the perpetually daunting problem of health care spending with ideas and energy that made her one of the most effective, influential and respected policy makers and economic minds in the country. Navigating the at-times labyrinthine budget process, Rivlin clarifies where the U.S. stands, where it’s headed and what the country needs to do to secure a healthy (and fiscally healthy) future for its citizens.

What's ahead on the economic horizon? Things seem more than unsettled at the moment: with renewed tension in the Middle East, an unstable housing market and a federal deficit that has increased significantly over the past few years, the implications for the nation's economic health seem muddled and confused and in desperate need of clarification. Alice Rivlin, former vice chair of the Federal Reserve Board and one of the most influential policy makers in Washington, puts her finger on the pulse of the nation's economic health and clarifies the economic clutter to discuss how the latest political and business headlines will shape growth and markets both domestically and internationally.

Following the 2008 financial crisis, a somewhat pessimistic narrative took hold—the aftermath of crises is always terrible. In truth, new research shows that the aftermath of crises is highly variable. Some aftermaths are truly awful, but some are remarkably benign. The talk explores the source of this variation across time and countries. It shows that the willingness and ability of governments to use economic policy is a crucial determinant of just how much damage a financial crisis does to the overall economy.

As the financial crisis of 2008 and the ensuing Great Recession recede from the headlines, it is time to take a frank historical look at the episode. How did the severity of the initial shocks that hit the economy—the bursting of the housing bubble, the financial meltdown—compare to its terrible precursor, the Great Depression of the 1930s? How successful were the monetary and fiscal policy responses? Were there policy actions that should have been taken but weren’t? And perhaps most important, have we made reforms and learned lessons that will help us do better in the future?

As the only person to serve on the staff of FBI Directors Bob Mueller and Jim Comey, and as a former United States Attorney handling complex and sensitive national security cases, Chuck is uniquely situated to provide a fascinating insight into the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in our electoral process, the techniques and strategies that prosecutors and FBI agents use to investigate multifaceted counterintelligence and criminal matters, and the implications of the investigation – and its fallout – on the FBI and the intelligence community.

Chuck welcomes the opportunity to respond to questions from audiences, which provides a further opportunity for him to share his unique and candid perspective and engage in an active conversation on the most important issues of the day.
