No country—since the rise of the United States—has ever challenged the rest of the world on so many fronts as the rise of China does today. Ted Fishman explores the dynamic behind China’s rise and how the vast changes in that country change life for the rest of us as workers, managers, consumers, citizens and even as parents. China has embarked on the most ambition infrastructure building effort in the world. It is also vastly expanding it education system so help push the nation and its people to the top of world economy. As it advances and China’s market power grows, the changes many long-standing rules and practices in global business, from the roles of Central Banks and currency regimes, to shape of mass and custom production to the rules—and lack of rules—for intellectual property protection.

For the first time in eight years, a new administration takes over the White House – an administration with vastly different policy goals than the one that preceded it.  President Trump’s initiatives promise to have far ranging effects on taxes, health care, sector regulation, government spending, and the country’s fiscal situation. 

Andy Friedman, an expert in political and legislative affairs, will lay out the wide ranging initiatives President Trump will seek to enact during his first year in office, including those involving infrastructure, jobs, tax reform, and industry-specific proposals for energy, health care, financial services, and other sectors.  He will consider the extent to which Trump can expect support from the Republican-led Congress and the impediments that nonetheless may stand in the way of enactment.  Throughout the year, he will continue to follow the proposals as they are formulated and refined. 

He also will consider the extent to which the new administration is likely to overturn or soften regulatory policies the Obama administration put in place, including the controversial Department of Labor regulation imposing new fiduciary obligations on financial advisors.

Finally, Andy will discuss how the new administration’s initiatives are likely to affect the economy, industry sectors, tax planning, investments, and the markets.  He will provide strategies that investors and financial advisors can consider to take advantage of (or protect against) market volatility and upcoming legislation, including specific strategies for investment, wealth transfer, and retirement planning.
