Why You Should Attend

The first two years of the Trump Administration have ushered in an environment characterized by paradox. On the one hand the investment climate has rarely looked better: the US is experiencing a remarkably stable bull stock market, the world economy is growing, there are massive reserves of uncommitted international investment capital, reduced tax drag on investment dollars entering the US economy, a less intrusive regulatory environment in the US (with some key exceptions), and an Administration that is hungry to "get wins" by doing deals and creating US jobs. On the other hand, the political and policy environment is permeated by contention, anxiety, and uncertainty: an unpredictable President, the ascendance of nationalist politics and policies the US and internationally, a simmering US institutional crisis, strained US federal agencies, active reassessment of the cardinal US commitments to free trade and cooperative security in the post-World War II era, and a geopolitical environment of active great power competition.

This seminar will consider the impact and future trajectory of this paradox in three related policy contexts directly affecting the international business and deal environment: trade, investment, and competition. The seminar will bring together industry, financial, and policy experts; attorneys and professional service providers; US and foreign Government officials; and corporate executives who operate at the intersection of policy, trade, and finance to deliver interdisciplinary insight into the risks and opportunities of a dynamic world.
