Does Your Meeting Address the Economy?

by Maddie Glading
Economists Holtz-Eakin, Slaughter, Karabell, Rossell

The past few weeks have brought new economic questions to light. Between stock market volatility, a new spending bill, and eyes on inflation, several of our clients have asked about expert economists who make sense of shifts and provide an optimistic outlook of opportunities created by this new climate.

Here is a list of our top speaker recommendations:

  • Doug Holtz-Eakin, President of the American Action Forum, former Director of the Congressional Budget Office, and economic and fiscal policy expert
    Holtz-Eakin has worked for years on economy policy issues, first on Capitol Hill and now in one of Washington’s top think tanks. He balances hearty credentials with real world, tangible examples of policy in practice. He’s a great choice if you’re looking for someone who can break down what policy decisions will mean and pinpoint both red flags and opportunities presented by the budget, the deficit, financial markets, regulatory reform, tax reform, and more. | VIDEO 
  • Matthew Slaughter, Dean of the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth and a former member of the White House Council of Economic Advisers
    Slaughter has a new speech called “The Opportunity Opportunity.” He stopped by our office and did a version of it for our team that we all found interesting because it focuses on the ways globalization, investment, and the global economy affect individual jobs and earnings. Sharing eye-popping statistics about household incomes, deficits, savings, and more, he helps audiences understand where the next boom will come from and how it will impact them. | VIDEO
  • Zach Karabell, Authority on the global economic system, former Wall Street advisor, and author of The Leading Indicators
    For someone who is more global in scope, and can also talk about the intersection of technology and innovation and how shifting forces may impact your group, Karabell is a great choice. He just wrote an article in The Washington Post about the machine-made drop in the stock market and the resulting man-made freak-out, noting that any “concern should be about the changing nature of investing rather than anxiety that what is happening says something about the real-world economic forces.” | VIDEO
  • Marci Rossell, Former Chief Economist for CNBC and co-host of Squawk Box
    Rossell is one of the more high-energy economic speakers on the circuit today. Known for her interactive and informative talks, she hits on the forces that are fueling our economy, what to expect over the next 5-10 years, and helps audiences resolve questions like “Is the economy sound or does it just look good on paper?” and “What role are China and India playing in the global economy today?” | VIDEO
