NASBP Jan. 15 Virtual Seminar: "Economic Update 2013" -- Could specific conditions speed recovery?


Join us at 2 p.m. Eastern time Tuesday for the NASBP Virtual Seminar "Economic Update 2013," presented by S. Scott MacDonald, who is president and CEO of the SW Graduate School of Banking (SWGSB) Foundation. The external environment in which surety professionals and their clients operate has changed dramatically since the 2008 financial crisis. A new regulatory and economic environment has been firmly put into place. It is clear that taxes will be higher going forward, health care more expensive and monetary policy very accommodating. Are there any bright spots in the economy, or are we destined, according to the Federal Reserve's forecasts, for a "light" economy well into 2016? According to MacDonald, who is also a director of the Assemblies for Bank Directors and adjunct professor of finance at the Cox School of Business at Southern Methodist University, the economy could pick up much faster than some experts would suggest, if only a few conditions are met. Still, many predict we are in for several more years of stagnant growth. Consider inviting your clients to join you at your office for this Virtual Seminar to find out MacDonald's pragmatic perspective of today's hot economic issues. Registration for each Virtual Seminar is $69 per site. Register now.
