Format: 30-45-minute keynote with Q&A

The outcome of the 2020 election will have the largest swing in economic policy in our lifetimes.

Fiscal stimulus, tax & trade policy and clean energy/environment will all see big changes. Banks, insurers and tech will likely see regulatory shifts that may disrupt their business models. Also, how does vaccine hesitancy and virus mutation change the focus for policy? Andrew Busch tackles all of this and answers the key questions: what does it mean for your industry and how you can prepare for it? In this keynote, Andy objectively breaks down the policies impacting the economy, business and jobs. He’ll give you the winners and losers in each sector of the economy.
