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)

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. 

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.

As founder of Helical Holdings, Ratigan knows first hand the ability for modern resource technology to secure the world. In this speech he tells stories of his travels in China, Myanmar, the Middle East and rural North America to provide evidence of just how valuable large networks of solar powered, hydroponic farming systems can be to resolve poverty, create jobs and improve health.

 

Robert Reich (Exclusively WSB)

Robert Reich answers critical questions regarding the economic outlook—both in America and abroad—while expertly weaving in his perspective on global economics, finance and politics. Host of the widely acclaimed documentary Inequality for All, Reich examines widening inequality and the consequences for the economy and for democracy with respect to the various choices we have for dealing with it. In a paradigm-shifting and nonpartisan manner, he looks at evidence in the United States and similar trends around the world to share a positive vision for tackling this disparity and getting America on the right track towards growth. Reich brings his experience and analytic prowess to bear on solutions for how Congress and other governments can spur growth, and summarizes the economic, financial, regulatory and political lessons likely to emerge from the recession, as well as how we can avoid making the same mistakes in the future.

Alice Rivlin (Exclusively WSB)

It's a fact: Federal spending will rise rapidly in the next few years for Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. These programs are already more than 40% of federal spending and are rising faster than every other budget line except interest on the debt. Clearly, costs of this kind simply cannot be sustained, and even though health care reform has passed, there are still further political, social and electoral implications. What's the solution? What must be done before three of the country's most important programs become too unwieldy to repair or altogether insolvent? Visionary thinker Alice Rivlin, former vice chair of the Federal Reserve Board tackles the perpetually daunting problem of health care spending with ideas and energy that made her one of the most effective, influential and respected policy makers and economic minds in the country. Navigating the at-times labyrinthine budget process, Rivlin clarifies where the U.S. stands, where it’s headed and what the country needs to do to secure a healthy (and fiscally healthy) future for its citizens.

Alice Rivlin (Exclusively WSB)

What's ahead on the economic horizon? Things seem more than unsettled at the moment: with renewed tension in the Middle East, an unstable housing market and a federal deficit that has increased significantly over the past few years, the implications for the nation's economic health seem muddled and confused and in desperate need of clarification. Alice Rivlin, former vice chair of the Federal Reserve Board and one of the most influential policy makers in Washington, puts her finger on the pulse of the nation's economic health and clarifies the economic clutter to discuss how the latest political and business headlines will shape growth and markets both domestically and internationally.

Kenneth Rogoff (Exclusively WSB)

Having had many stops and starts, the economic recovery faced both in the US and around the world has hardly been smooth in the wake of the worst recession that the markets have faced since World War II. Add in a mix of sovereign debt crises in Europe, slowing growth in China, political instability around the world and wide disagreements on economic policy in the US and many are left to wonder just when the world's economic engine will get back to consistent and solid growth. In this timely and topical analysis of what's going on economically in the US and around the world, Harvard Professor and world-renowned economist Kenneth Rogoff trains his sights on how the economy is likely to evolve over the short to medium term, on how markets and policymakers are reacting and what still remains to be done to put markets on the path to full recovery. Particularly adept at handling global economic questions of any scope or dimension, Rogoff translates complex concepts into useful, easily accessible information for his audience-no matter an industry expert or market novice.
