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.

Few of those covering Washington have a closer viewpoint into the up-to-the-minute maneuverings of those shaping the national debate than CNN’s Manu Raju, a journalist who has cultivated sources whose decisions are directly impacting the future of this country.

From the perspective of a reporter who is on the scene every day to report on developments with consequences that extend far outside the Beltway, Raju offers audiences candid and sober insight into how the collision of personality and politics in D.C. can impact the lives of millions. With first-hand stories that will illuminate and entertain, audiences will better understand what goes into generating the types of headlines that serve as the first draft of history.

Anders Fogh Rasmussen (Exclusively WSB)

The British vote to leave the European Union has led to an uncertain future of the relationship between the UK and the EU—and the United States. Prime Minister Theresa May has confirmed that Britain would leave the EU single market and made it clear that her fundamental aim is to regain control of immigration and lawmaking. During this presentation, Anders Fogh Rasmussen will share his perspective on the political, societal, and public trends that led to the outcome of the referendum of the British membership of the EU. He will also explore the upcoming negotiations with a heavy emphasis on the subsequent risks and opportunities for companies on both sides of the Atlantic and around the world.

Anders Fogh Rasmussen (Exclusively WSB)

We live in an increasingly complex world. Last year alone, we witnessed the British vote to leave the European Union, the election of Donald Trump, and many other geopolitical changes. The coming years—and forthcoming elections across Europe—are likely to bring even more change to the structures of world politics. Drawing on his experiences as prime minister of a coalition government for eight years in Denmark, Anders Fogh Rasmussen discusses these developments and argues that populism is often based on a core of truth. Rather than ostracize populists, establishment parties are often better off welcoming them and working with them. Weaving together current political dynamics, history, and personal experiences, this presentation offers audiences a sharp analysis of current political trends around the world. 

How America succeeds amid global uncertainties, structural economic changes, currency fluctuations and a challenging political environment. 

Financial news anchor and columnist Trish Regan helps you interpret the multitude of headlines coming out of Washington to enable you to better understand the economic opportunities and challenges we currently face. Regan examines the actual policy changes that will impact our economy, our markets, and our future. From tax reform to infrastructure spending, global trade agreements, regulation changes, higher interest rates, growing debt and global instability, Regan provides in-depth, thoughtful analysis on the most up-to-date news stories that will affect the nation and your future.

U.S. wages are at their lowest level in more than 20 years and workers are growing tired of a stagnant economy. Globalization, coupled with structural economic changes, have created an environment that often rewards capital at a greater rate than it does labor – and workers around the world are, increasingly, saying “enough!” From Brexit to the U.S. election, middle class workers are making their voices heard. Trish Regan examines the policies that need to be enacted now to help change the fate of U.S. workers and strengthen our middle class, while simultaneously encouraging companies to invest in the world’s greatest economy.
