Lunch / Dialogue on Election

Political Journalists View: what a Trump Administration means for business and policy in “New Majority” community

The big question: what will 2017 bring in government and the economy? A common answer heard from elected officials is “wait and see.” After a campaign season of not supporting Donald Trump, Wall Street, business leaders, and investors seem to be buoyant now. Theories on the future proliferate. Two experienced political journalists who covered the election sit down in a frank fireside chat to describe what they saw in election 2016 and what to look out for in the coming years amongst the uncertainty in government, policy, and economy. This session will be under Chatham House Rule (participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed).
