Capital of uncertainty: Making sense of the latest from Washington on healthcare, taxes, and budgets

09 August, 2017 11:00 AM ET [11:00] (New York), 03:00 PM UTC [15:00] | (1 hr) | Time Zone Converter

Congress and the President have a busy agenda over the next few months. A new healthcare system must be enacted or a firm commitment must be made to administering the existing one. Tax reform proposals could dramatically change how individuals and corporations organize employment and business activity with large potentially consequences for firm investment decisions. A new budget could reshape spending levels and priorities and must be agreed to as the clock ticks towards another debt ceiling showdown.  

Join our panel of experts from The Conference Board and the Committee for Economic Development and learn what policy proposals could have the largest effect on your business and what influence these actions could have in shaping the US economic environment.
