The Root of the Economic Woes and the Need to Address the Fundamental Cause

Savvy economists saw it coming. The bubble in the housing prices, high loan to value ratio for millions of homeowners and the manner in which mortgages were securitized was not a formula for long-term economic success. The result was household wealth degradation and destruction of capital financial institutions that hold mortgages and mortgage-backed securities. While the country hopes that recent financial rescue plans will bring back the confidence needed to revive the financial system, has the root of the problem been addressed and where do we go from here? In this revealing presentation customized for your organization from one of the world’s leading economists, Martin Feldstein, the George F. Baker Professor of Economics at Harvard University, shares:

· Insights into the current, and complex, economic dynamics
· What results we can expect from recent congressional and federal government initiatives
· What initiatives will get the economy back on track

The Great Tax Debate: Why the Tax Policies of the Next President and Congress are No Party

Since the Sons of Liberty threw casks of tea into the Boston Harbor, taxation has been a hot topic for Americans. President Obama has promised to pursue a very specific approach regarding tax policies based on advice from a litany of renowned experts with substantial economic experience. So, what will the president’s plan mean for you, your organization and the country? Martin Feldstein, who has been called one of the ten best economists in the world and stands as an economic research pioneer. In this compelling presentation, he reviews:

· What initiatives are likely to produce jobs, increase wages and investment in business
· How tax policy may impact healthcare
· Fact versus fiction in the tax debate
