Oil prices have become increasingly volatile and important for financial markets. Jason Schenker has been ranked the #1 oil price forecaster in the world in 2011, 2015, and 2016 by Bloomberg News. He has also been attending OPEC meetings for over a decade, and he was the first oil price forecaster to predict oil’s rise in 2004 to $50. In this presentation, Schenker will share his views on the outlook for oil and gas in the United States and abroad. He will also discuss the implications for the global economy and global politics. This presentation includes topics covered in Schenker’s #1 Amazon best seller Commodity Prices 101: A Primer on the Financial Market Drivers of Commodity Prices.

Audiences will learn about:

  • The current state of global oil markets and prices
  • Political dynamics of OPEC and non-OPEC producers
  • Long-term expectations, risks and opportunities for oil production, prices and energy alternatives

Susan Schwab (Exclusively WSB)

Having been at the forefront of U.S. global trade strategy, negotiations and market activities, Ambassador Schwab shares a senior-level overview of the politics and policy initiatives at the White House and on Capitol Hill. She takes a broad look—tailoring her remarks to her audience’s specific trade interests and challenges—at future international trends including relations with China, agreements being negotiated by the U.S. and other major trading nations, and how corporate America can benefit from global trade initiatives.

As U.S. under secretary of state for political affairs, Ambassador Wendy Sherman became responsible for overseeing the United States’ diplomacy in every region of the world during her time at the State Department from 2011–2015. Sherman is able to offer a unique insider’s view of where the world is headed in the years ahead and how that will affect global business.

As Chinese financial markets grow larger and more integrated, volatility will no longer be contained to the accounts of niche emerging markets investors. Rapidly expanding financial flows to and from China, even in the context of capital controls, mean that shocks from Chinese markets will increasingly reverberate globally. U.S. and European regulators still struggle to establish coordinating mechanisms to manage bank failures and market turmoil on both sides of the Atlantic, but they have only the dimmest understanding of China’s largest financial institutions and Western exposures to a sharp Chinese downturn.

What can Western regulators do to improve transparency into China’s banking and insurance giants? In the next crisis, will Chinese officials engage openly with foreign counterparts to restore confidence in markets or will they revert to comfortable habits of pretending the problem will go away?


The sharp recent turn in the U.S.-Russia relationship has driven a stake into what was left of a gasping effort on both sides to find common ground. Washington is focused on punishing Russia for its annexation of Crimea, its support of Syrian repression and, above all, its meddling in the 2016 presidential election. The narrative in Moscow, meanwhile, paints the United States as an overreaching power actively expanding the West’s footholds around Russia’s borders with an ultimate goal of regime change in the Kremlin itself. It’s not just that neither side knows how to get relations back on track, it’s that neither side wants to.

But can such an important relationship get even worse? Will the tensions over fake news and cyberspace spill over into nuclear re-armament or open hostilities? What guidance do the Cold War and post-Soviet relations offer to limit the risks and secure at least some cooperation on challenges of nuclear proliferation, energy policy or climate change?

Michael Smerconish’s daily interaction with his listeners across the country gives him a grassroots perspective on the critical matters facing our country from the state of our economy, the budget deficit, the future of health care and immigration to the divisiveness of political partisanship and civil discourse across the country. Using the perfect blend of analysis and humor, he delivers an engaging, thought-provoking and balanced dialogue on today’s issues, the 2016 Presidential election and the possible long-term implications of the polarization in politics over the coming years.

John Snow (Exclusively WSB)

In spite of the current economic woes within 15 years, China, India and the U.S. will compete for recognition as the world’s economic leader. Who benefits and who is left vulnerable by a major shift in economic power? What does continued globalization and economic interdependency mean to U.S. multinationals down the road? John Snow details the implications of a more competitive global market to audiences concerned about American business growth and the economy's stake in world trade.

John Snow (Exclusively WSB)

Why are some economies more successful than others? Why does economic reform thrive in East Asia while it flounders in many countries in Africa and Latin America? What kind of risks do other countries' economies face, and in turn, what specific threats or opportunities do they pose to the U.S.? John Snow discusses how other nations deal with fast-changing economic dynamics that can produce instability and reveals what the U.S. can learn from it. Audiences will confidently walk away from Snow's presentation knowing how to be better prepared for constant fluctuations in the global business and capital markets.
