The Window on America series aims to give business executives an insider’s view of critical economic, business, and policy issues affecting the world’s largest economy.

In our inaugural webcast on October 12, Bart van Ark, chief economist of The Conference Board in New York, and Steve Odland, CEO of the Committee for Economic Development in Washington, DC, along with other guest experts, discussed the upcoming US presidential election and its global ramifications, not only for politics and policy, but for business as well.

Please join us right after the US elections to see if our insights and analysis are on target. Go beyond predictable political analysis to analyze what a Clinton or a Trump victory might mean for economic health, immigration and trade policy, and business prospects worldwide.

Who should attend: Those with an interest in the economic, business, and policy direction of the US economy.
