WHAT: Capital Markets 101: The Global Economy: What Is and Isn’t Being Done to Keep it Afloat
WHEN: 11:30am-1:00pm, Friday, February 3, 2012
WHERE: Capitol Visitor Center, Room SVC-212
DETAILS: Can’t make it to Wharton, Harvard, Haas or Kellogg for a quick primer on the basics of global finance and capital markets? Third Way is bringing them to you. We’ve launched Capitol Hill’s first pop-up business school featuring the most knowledgeable and interesting experts on financial markets.
Following last fall’s sessions with Mark Zandi and Sheila Bair – on February 3rd, Third Way hosted Dr. Carl Weinberg, Founder and Chief Economist of High Frequency Economics, one the country’s premier economic forecasting firms. Barron’s recently noted that Dr. Weinberg is “sought after as much for his provocative views on the global economies as for his deep experience.”
Dr. Weinberg has unparalleled economic knowledge on China, Japan, and Europe. His “Notes on the Global Economy” and “Weekly Notes on China’s Economy” have become standard, must-reads for business and the press. Dr. Weinberg, who also teaches international finance at New York University, spoke to us about the U.S. and global economy and what policymakers are doing, not doing, or ought to be doing to keep the economy afloat.
