Keynote Speaker Making Headlines
Our Fall Conference keynote speaker, Dr. Peter Navarro, has recently been in the news! Here’s an excerpt from a Bloomberg online article (Bloomberg.com) from August 1st in which he is cited as a key economic advisor for Donald Trump:

“[A]nd while the economist has never met the candidate, he describes a campaign role as follows: ‘I now work closely with the campaign on issues related to the economy, trade, China, and foreign policy in Asia.’ He endorsed and defended Trump in a March essay, and given that relatively few academic economists have embraced the Trump candidacy, Navarro is plausibly a leading candidate for a top job in a Trump administration. It’s easy enough to imagine Navarro working in government. He teaches at a highly regarded research university, has extensive private sector, investment, and media experience, has a Ph.D from Harvard, has written on management, and wrote an investment newsletter.”

Dr. Navarro will speak at our Fall Conference beginning at 9:15 a.m. on Tuesday, November 15th, just ONE WEEK after the presidential election! Whomever you may be voting for this year, we’re guaranteed to hear a unique perspective on the global economy and its impact on North America!
