Todd Buchholz

Former White House Director of Economic Policy and CNBC Regular

A former White House economic policy advisor and Wall Street executive, Todd Buchholz puts the domestic and global economic crisis in perspective.

 
Prosperity Ahead—Or Not?

As President Donald Trump promises to reshape policy from taxation to healthcare to foreign affairs, governments and companies must grapple with crucial questions: can the new President’s tax cuts prod the economy to roar ahead, despite worldwide worries over Brexit and trade disputes? Will the Fed keep its independence? Can the president repeal Obamacare and Dodd-Frank, while fostering a new era of deregulation? Will the U.S. build up bigger and bigger debts without tackling entitlements? What’s at stake for the economy, the financial markets and geopolitics, amid foreign policy crises in Syria, Ukraine, Venezuela, and China? Todd Buchholz has delivered keynotes at the White House, Treasury Department, UK Parliament and stock exchanges from Mexico City to Tokyo to Abu Dhabi. His just-released book The Price of Prosperity is ranked #1 on Amazon for government and received rave reviews from advisors to Donald Trump, as well as from Hillary Clinton. On a nationwide radio show, Trump counselor Stephen Bannon “congratulated Buchholz for so presciently analyzing today’s economic issues.”  By “connecting the dots” of the world economy, Todd will inspire you and help you develop a timely vision for the economy, the financial markets, and the dramatic impact of the presidential election.

How To Compete in A Global Economy

Never before have businesses felt such excruciating pressure to compete. The go-go days of the 1990s turned into the go-sideways days of the 2000s. What’s next? While enjoying super low interest rates and riding a roller coaster stock market, firms have struggled to raise prices, even when their costs go up. China poses a threat but also an opportunity for new sales. Loyal customers seem ready to jump to a competitor. How can your company or industry survive and thrive? Can the Fed keep the economy recovering in the Janet Yellen era? Will Congress try yet another “stimulus”? Todd Buchholz, who led the White House Energy Strategy, will help you figure out whether OPEC and Russia can tighten energy supplies again or whether a revolution in natural gas will reinvigorate U.S. factories. Learn how the “scissors economy” opens up new business and investment opportunities. Today might be the very best—or the very worst—time to finance a loan. By “connecting the dots” of the world economy, Todd teaches how to anticipate the new trends that open up fresh opportunities for manufacturing, service and technology companies.

Behavioral Economics

Business leaders and policymakers take heed – your social, cognitive, and emotional biases (and those of your consumers) will affect your finances. Todd Buchholz examines how generational differences, habitual cognitive decisions, and work relationships all operate together to inform market decisions and public choices.

Todd takes a sweeping view of the nature of competition in business, arguing for the vitality, growth, and progress it inspires in us.  Drawing on biography, he also looks into the lives of influential entrepreneurs to explain how little ideas were turned into big successes that overhauled the way business is done, providing immediately actionable takeaways.

As talented journalists such as Malcolm Gladwell and David Brooks delve into the fields of behavioral economics and behavioral finance, Todd’s analytical work offers a deeper understanding particularly suited for business people and policymakers who need to apply psychological principles to everyday life.
