Ron Insana (Exclusively WSB)

Despite an unbridled optimism about America’s future, Ron Insana believes recent developments in the United States do raise concerns that the renewed ascent of the American economy could face some serious threats in the near and intermediate-term. In this presentation, Insana addresses these issues head on to ensure that corporations, financial firms, markets and even our government do not become complacent about risk. Complacency is the most pernicious enemy of progress, and with that in mind, he has outlined five factors for audience members to takeaway that he believes are necessary to acknowledge as the United States continues its recovery from the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.

They are:

  • Global Deflation
  • An Unfriendly Fed
  • A New Cold War/A New Hot War
  • A Loss of Energy
  • America’s Age of Austerity

All of these issues are simmering beneath the surface of an economic rebound, and Insana feels he would be remiss if he did not raise some cautionary flags to audience members in an effort to highlight the factors that could shake the very foundations of “Fortress America."

Ron Insana (Exclusively WSB)

Now that Donald Trump is President, “Trumponomics” are the order of the day.

Counter to what the experts predicted (shock!), stocks sold off only briefly on election night and since then, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has made a succession of new all-time highs. So what is Wall Street telling us about Washington and how will Washington, or a Trump presidency, affect Wall Street? (and even Main Street?) If, indeed, the President rolls back 70% of all federal regulations, as promised, the first beneficiaries will be financials and pharma, banks and bio-tech. If tax rates are slashed, wealthy individuals and U.S. corporations with benefit big-league!

But there will be downsides to a Trump presidency, as well.

A trade war with Mexico and China could lead to a deep recession and intense pain for companies that either do business in those countries or rely on the international supply chain to obtain goods and services from around the world. There will likely be faster growth but more inflation. There may be higher rates and a new head of the Fed! The short-run reaction on Wall Street has been positive, but what about the long-run implications for Wall Street, Main Street and Washington?

Ron Insana does a deep dive into uncharted waters to help you navigate a new economy that may have islands of prosperity in what may well be very turbulent waters.
