Over the last two decades, dynamic, integrated supply chains have developed across North America tightly linking the three major economies in ways that are mutually beneficial. America’s original NAFTA negotiator explains how our collaboration has made the region the most competitive in the world. We don’t simply sell to each other, we make things together. Forty percent of what the United States imports from Mexico consists of U.S. content, and 25 percent of imports from Canada contain U.S. content. It is in our national interest to build on the vibrant commercial connections that have developed over the past two decades – and an updated NAFTA is critical to that effort. The former U.S. Trade Representative shares the winning recipe on how to move ahead with the issues that will make a positive difference for businesses, large and small, make workers more secure, and build on a vital North American partnership.

A strong U.S.-China relationship is essential to domestic and global prosperity and security. Yet, mutual mistrust between the two nations threatens to undermine cooperation between the world’s two largest economies. Both countries face considerable economic and political uncertainties. China’s reform efforts have slowed, while the role of the state has increased in recent years. Against this challenging backdrop, one of the leading public voices on U.S.-China commercial relations and doing business in China offers her insights on how to work collaboratively and get results in the world’s largest market.

America’s political rhetoric is increasingly heated and hostile to trade, but turning inward would be catastrophic to U.S. interests.  Trade has been an engine of growth for the United States that has strengthened the economies of our partners and allies, lifted billions out of poverty, and brought the world closer together on a range of important policy issues. While educating the public about the economic, development and security benefits of trade is critical, our leaders must also launch programs to create jobs for those whom trade has not necessarily brought prosperity, especially those in industries with rapidly changing technology.  Responding effectively to the deep and understandable anxiety over a rapidly-changing workplace is essential to building and sustaining the popular support to keep markets and borders open. As a former USTR and negotiator of landmark trade agreements like NAFTA, Hills offers a unique vantage point on one of the most controversial issues of our time.

Investing is more than just the study of finance. It’s ultimately the study of human behavior and how people react under pressure and with limited information. There are many lessons from diverse fields that can teach us valuable investing takeaways, such as how the War on Cancer focuses on complicated treatments with low chance of success while discounting simple prevention that can make a massive difference. The best investors in the world integrate knowledge from many different fields, including psychology, sociology, history, biology and physics. Morgan Housel shares four lessons from different fields to help make you a better investor.

Risk, in investing textbooks, is taught as the stock market going up and down. In the real world, risk is far more complicated, harder to define and different for every investor. Risk in the real world is not being able to meet your financial goals, which is primarily caused by investors’ own biases and behaviors, particularly buying when the market is high and selling after a pullback. Morgan Housel shares five clear stories of how investors, business executives and everyday people misinterpreted risk to disastrous consequences, and how investors can identify and correct their own biases to make better investment decisions.

If the market never fell, it wouldn’t be risky. If it wasn’t risky, everyone would buy it. If everyone bought it, it would get expensive. When it’s expensive, it’s risky. And when it’s risky, it falls. Morgan Housel shows why market volatility and bear markets are not only normal, but inevitable. Using stock market history, economic theory and current examples of real investors, he walks audiences through the history of bull and bear markets, turning points and the smartest ways investors can navigate volatility—namely, learning how to deal with and accept it, rather than attempting to avoid it.

Every economy is driven by how groups of people respond to incentives and opportunities. Those behaviors are ingrained in human nature, rarely changing over time, so there's a lot we can learn about tomorrow's economy by studying how we responded to the past. At the same time, the economy in recent years has undergone tremendous changes in how people share and interpret information. Two years after the Wright Brothers flew for the first time, The New York Times still questioned whether humans would ever fly; today, Twitter breaks news faster than any journalist can report it. That has upended many of the traditional forces that have guided how people think about risk and opportunity, and thus economic growth.

Presented through the lens of behavioral finance and psychology, this talk walks audiences through where the economy is heading and how industries can stand to thrive.
