From the time he took the reins at General Electric, Jeff Immelt understood that in order to remain competitive, the company needed to do two things: innovatively leverage technologies that would allow GE and their customers to achieve leaps in productivity, and enter faster-growing markets around the world at scale. He succeeded at both, transforming GE from an industrial titan into the first digital industrial one by building a strong digital platform and establishing leadership in the Industrial Internet. He also greatly expanded the company’s global presence—today, more than 60% of its revenue comes from outside the U.S. In this engaging presentation, Immelt explains how to build a digital, global company that can withstand change and foster sustainable growth.

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.

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

 

Markets are anticipatory and their messages may serve as important warnings. Are you ready to listen? Whether a two-front trade war; peak economic growth worldwide; strong profit growth here at home, or political upheaval in the White House, the financial markets are clearly growing uncomfortable with event risks on the horizon. In the global bond markets, there are some signs that suggest global economic growth may have hit the ceiling, while also warning of signs of strain in the financial system. Ron Insana reads the message of the markets and tells you what is on the horizon for your organization.
