Even while overall growth seems tepid, tremendous financial opportunities still exist for both states and corporations. But with those opportunities, challenges are building. Dr. Raghuram Rajan knows this from firsthand experience—as governor of the Reserve Bank of India, he played a central role in the third-largest (and growing) economy in the world. In this discussion, he analyzes the economic impact of specific, targeted “global players”—large countries and common global forces—as opposed to a general overview of the world.

Easy money is having diminishing effect after years of accommodative policies. Dr. Raghuram Rajan weighs the significant risks incorporated by doing much more, with the difficulties of exiting from easy money. Not only will the first central bank that moves face significant costs, they could also be accused of failing their domestic mandate of maintaining inflation at reasonable levels. Dr. Rajan discusses possible ways policy could evolve, as well as the consequences to global asset prices, inflation and risk.    

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.

Anders Fogh Rasmussen (Exclusively WSB)

Drawing on his book The Will to Lead, Anders Fogh Rasmussen fiercely defends freedom and the importance of America’s global leadership, offering an astute analysis of current geopolitical events. From the Iranian nuclear deal, to the invasion of Ukraine, to the Arab Spring and turmoil in the Middle East, Rasmussen is forceful but even-handed in his sharp analysis of the decisions made by the U.S. government, comparing those of recent American leaders. Drawing on his own experiences as Prime Minister of Denmark and Secretary General of NATO, he examines President Trump’s potential to stabilize American politics and to restore reliable American leadership to the world stage in the coming years. Warning against American isolationism, he explores the geopolitical risks as well as the opportunities the Trump Administration will bring. Weaving together wisdom, history, and his personal experiences, this presentation will captivate audiences.

Anders Fogh Rasmussen (Exclusively WSB)

Last year brought significant change to the world’s existing geopolitical structures, and this year is likely to increase their complexity even more, causing financial investors to be additionally meticulous. This new climate requires a solid basis for balancing risk and reward. In this presentation, Anders Fogh Rasmussen explores the ever-changing geopolitical environment with a sharp focus on the intersection between multinational business and trade, security and stability, economic growth, innovation, and governance. He describes the impact of the Trump Administration, Brexit, and the upcoming European elections on future financial investments. 

Anders Fogh Rasmussen (Exclusively WSB)

The British vote to leave the European Union has led to an uncertain future of the relationship between the UK and the EU—and the United States. Prime Minister Theresa May has confirmed that Britain would leave the EU single market and made it clear that her fundamental aim is to regain control of immigration and lawmaking. During this presentation, Anders Fogh Rasmussen will share his perspective on the political, societal, and public trends that led to the outcome of the referendum of the British membership of the EU. He will also explore the upcoming negotiations with a heavy emphasis on the subsequent risks and opportunities for companies on both sides of the Atlantic and around the world.

Despite advertising to investors to use a passive buy-and-hold approach to stocks, data shows this is poor way to generate wealth even long term. The random nature of stock prices means that inflation-adjusted returns significantly underperform investment targets and exposes investors to greater risk than they realize.

Active trading is NOT stock picking or “day-trading” rather it is the use of equity options to reduce the cost of owning any given investment, which reduces risk and increases the probability that any given investment will increase in value. Dylan Ratigan talks about this strategy and how it has yielded a 16% higher inflation adjusted returns since 2000, with 2/3 the risk of a passive fund.

How America succeeds amid global uncertainties, structural economic changes, currency fluctuations and a challenging political environment. 

Financial news anchor and columnist Trish Regan helps you interpret the multitude of headlines coming out of Washington to enable you to better understand the economic opportunities and challenges we currently face. Regan examines the actual policy changes that will impact our economy, our markets, and our future. From tax reform to infrastructure spending, global trade agreements, regulation changes, higher interest rates, growing debt and global instability, Regan provides in-depth, thoughtful analysis on the most up-to-date news stories that will affect the nation and your future.

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.
