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.

Drawing on his experience running the DEA, and his more than two decades at the highest levels of federal law enforcement, Chuck provides a fascinating inside look at the opioid crisis – how did this epidemic start, what continues to fuel it, where is it headed, and what can we do as a nation to address it? Chuck believes there is an important role for law enforcement in this calamity, but that it is primarily a public health crisis that must be addressed through education, treatment, rehabilitation, and a change in the culture of pain management.

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.
