Please join us for an exclusive event featuring Grant Thornton’s Chief Economist Diane Swonk and National Managing Principal of Public Policy Mary Moore Hamrick.
The program will feature an economic update from Grant Thornton’s Chief Economist Diane Swonk. As an advisor to the Federal Reserve, Diane will talk about how new leadership at the Federal Reserve will influence the trajectory for interest rates. She will analyze first quarter growth as the debt ceiling looms with the potential for another government shutdown, and she will explain how quickly new tariffs and other shifts in trade policy can affect the economy. Plus, Diane will share her preview of the latest employment report due March 9, including the wage pressures that employers face this year. A leading economist, Diane is sought out for her insights by major media outlets including CNBC, Bloomberg, PBS Newshour, the Wall Street Journal, NY Times, Washington Post and more. She was recently featured on NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt.
You’ll also hear a clear-eyed assessment and business-minded analysis of the American legislative and political landscape by Grant Thornton's Mary Moore Hamrick, National Managing Principal of Public Policy. We’ll look at what’s next following the passage of tax reform – the likely timeline of key policy events and the political climate that will influence the business environment in 2018 and beyond.
