Mid-Winter Meeting Keynote: Todd Buchholz

Keynote Address: 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 recover, despite worldwide worries over Brexit and trade disputes ? Will the Fed keep its independence? How 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. 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.
About Todd Buchholz:
Acclaimed author, former White House economic policy director and economist Todd Buchholz connects the dots between local and global markets, the politics that define business environments, and the people who drive it all.
In his keynote speeches, Buchholz draws on years of research into financial topics ranging from housing finance to fast-food lawsuits to the influence of competition on our lives as working members of society (Rush: Why You Need and Love the Rat Race). His work in historical economics (New Ideas from Dead Economists, New Ideas from Dead CEOs) brings to light past influences and trends that affect today’s economic landscapes. From Here to Economy is a trusted guide to economic literacy, simply and clearly explained. In Lasting Lessons from the Corner Office, through “compelling and fast-reading narratives” (Booklist), Buchholz examines the great ideas, and some of the failures, of several CEOs and entrepreneurs whose businesses grew to become household names.
Buchholz is an experienced and dedicated keynote speaker and media personality who is noted for his sharp wit, candid demeanor, and well-researched arguments on a broad variety of topics.
