Speaking Topics

After the Great Recession: A Changed Landscape
The economy has started to grow after what the professionals were calling the worst recession since the Great Depression, but how will it fully recover? Everything from consumer spending, savings, credit markets and trade dynamics were shattered by global financial and economic developments, not to mention the number of job losses. Of course, layoffs have slowed recently, but how long will it take before the economy starts creating jobs? We can see that the major financial institutions are no longer in fear of collapsing, but when will banks finally loosen their purse strings and give smaller businesses the chance to expand and hire? And with the economy still dependent on massive government spending, how can our policymakers bring down the financial deficit to avoid uncapped inflation while managing to avoid another downturn? Dr. Mark Zandi will give his insight on:

•The timeline for a full economic recovery

•Potential policy pitfalls

•The outlook for a permanently changed economic landscape

•How mortgage lenders, investment bankers, builders, regulators, and the Federal Reserve caused this global disaster

•How homeowners and investors can protect themselves from financial shocks already on the horizon

•What policymakers need to do now to prevent a recurrence.
