Mary L. Schapiro (Exclusively WSB)

In an engaging moderated question-and-answer session, Mary Schapiro shares with audiences her unparalleled perspective on financial regulation, enforcement policy and leadership and the critical roles they play in the future health of the U.S. and global economy. Audiences are invited into the discussion for an insightful and thought-provoking look at the many issues facing corporate boards and the financial services industry.

Global bond markets are the ultimate arbiters of sensible economic policy. To the extent that voters push government officials toward self-defeating, protectionist policies, investors should ask for a higher return. Emerging markets like Brazil and South Africa learned the hard way that borrowing internationally requires them to maintain a certain economic orthodoxy that doesn’t always win votes. During the European financial crisis, bond spreads forced political leaders to make deeply unpopular decisions to save the euro.

What signs are visible in today’s markets to suggest discomfort with populist forces or worries about new challenges to trade rules? Will votes for Brexit and Donald Trump ultimately lead to higher borrowing costs?  How should multinational companies whose business models depend on long supply chains and frictionless border crossings adjust?

The abduction of Elizabeth Smart was one of the most followed child abduction cases of our time. At the tender age of 14, just before celebrating her middle school graduation, Elizabeth went to sleep in her family home just as she had always done. Awakened hours later to a knife held roughly against her throat, she was taken from her home and family and held captive for nine long months. In this captivating message, Elizabeth shares her incredible story of perseverance in the face of unimaginable adversity. Her speech not only tells her personal story but also discusses topics such as overcoming extreme adversity, the importance and process of recovery, and not allowing your past to dictate your life’s future. Elizabeth knows that there is nothing more important than having hope in a difficult situation. Having lived through an extreme circumstance as a young teenager, she gives great insight and hope to all.

John Snow (Exclusively WSB)

Financial markets have witnessed an alarming series of events that promise to radically alter the global economy and financial systems for years to come. Much of the situation can be attributed to the creation of financial instruments that were meant to disaggregate risk, but instead led to widespread degradation of the economic architecture. As the executive and legislative branches of government work to contain the situation and restore confidence, how will these reforms impact corporate America, the domestic and global economy, and average citizens alike. In this presentation the esteemed economic and business leader, John Snow, analyzes the moves that brought the economy to the brink of disaster and suggests what decisions must be made to move the economy forward – both in the short term and the long term. In addition, Snow shares:

  • His insight into the consequences of new policy decisions such as the creation of a new financial agency to provide industry oversight
  • Who will emerge as the global winners and losers
  • Will the shoe drop on other aspects of the market that are largely unregulated such as the world of private equity?

In election after election there is endless complaining about waste, fraud and abuse in Washington, each batch of candidates promises to clean it up, but somehow it never happens. With the latest economic debacle in full tilt, one thing is for certain—you and I will pick up the monster-sized bill in many different ways. What is missing is more regulation from Washington and more prosecution, not less. Ben Stein shares these insights and more regarding the current economy, what prompted this fiasco and what must be done to dig us out.

Jeremy C. Stein (Exclusively WSB)

A former Fed governor and leading financial economist, Jeremy Stein brings together his academic expertise and his policymaking experience to discuss a wide range of issues facing the world economy, market participants and policymakers: lessons learned from the global financial crisis; the costs and benefits of unconventional monetary policy; the process of policy normalization and the associated spillovers and communications challenges; emerging risks and vulnerabilities in financial markets; the interplay of monetary policy, macroprudential regulation and financial stability and the management of the central bank’s balance sheet.

The current financial crisis didn’t start with the housing bubble—it started with policies enacted by previous Presidents, starting with Ronald Reagan all the way through to President George W. Bush. Stiglitz explores how free market financial policy and government regulation, or lack thereof, led to the 2007 financial crisis. This fast-paced presentation includes an overview of the current state of the economy and also what businesses and financial institutions can expect during economic recovery.

Based on his book by the same name, Joseph Stiglitz explores why globalization is failing so many people and what must be done create stable economies. This presentation specifically demonstrates the intersection between these key components: trade relationships, the gap between rich and poor, China/America, global warming and pollution, developing & emerging economies, and international governance/regulatory bodies.
