Questions for Debate:
Fiscal Policy: How will the U.S. stimulate its economy and yet plot a course to reduce the overhang of government debt?
Regulatory Policy: Major sectors of the U.S. Economy have been the focus of new and possibly onerous regulations. Will the results of the election change the investment outlook in these sectors? How do the experts handicap the prospects in various industries and economic sectors?
Foreign Policy: How will the stance of the new administration affect the presence of the U.S. In international disputes in the Middle East, South Asia, East Asia, and Europe? What does this imply for investing in developed and emerging economies?
Incentives for Innovation and Business Expansion: Growth remains the major challenge for the U.S. Economy in the medium-term. Will the new administration promote such growth in the private sector? What does this imply for a recovery of venture capital investing and investing in growth stocks?
