The American economy and U.S. corporate profits are likely to endure slow growth for many domestic reasons: intrusive government policies, intransigent domestic politics, massive entitlement and debt loads, and an under-educated work force, to name a few. Internationally, the U.S. now faces economic slowdowns from an over-indebted Europe (and Japan), a slowing China, and a possible Cold War restart. Market valuations have risen in spite of these hurdles. The talk will, of course, discuss the economic and markets background, and also attempt to present steps to resolve the adverse conditions so described... in order to ramp up U.S. and world GDP growth.
Attend this workshop to learn:
What are the most relevant causes of a slowing economy?
How might we change the culture in Washington to reduce uncertainty and improve confidence in the private sector.
How can we take advantage of American optimism to innovate?
Reasons to attend:
To gain the knowledge of how to invest in publicly traded markets, private markets and inflation hedges to cope with and take advantage of today's environment.
To become familiar with the long-term history of "money printing" and its possible consequences.
With interest rates so low, should we be buying bonds? Or... borrowing more money for investment purposes?
Between degrees from Harvard College and Harvard Business School, Bruce Johnstone served two years in the U.S. Navy as an officer on a destroyer. He managed the Fidelity Equity-Income Fund from 1971-1990, during which, the fund achieved a return of over 1100%, nearly twice that of the S&P 500. This return ranked Bruce as the #1 equity-income fund manager in the nation for the 19-year period. In 1987, Money Magazine named him America's Best Income Investor.
