2022 US Midterm Elections: outlook and growth opportunities!

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

Midterm elections will likely bring big changes for US legislation, regulations and economy. There are razor thin Democratic majorities in both the House and the Senate. Since 1938, there have only been 2 times a sitting president added seats in a mid-term election. Gridlock is likely, but don’t be fooled by the name as there will be plenty of action in Congress. How will a split Congress impact regulation? Or spending? Or trade? Or the Supreme Court? Federal Reserve Policy? What will be the Biden legislative strategy for the remaining 2 years of his presidency? How will all this impact the 2024 US Presidential election? As an economic futurist, Andrew Busch has been in the US government when a shift has occurred and provides his insights into answering all these questions. Most importantly, he gives you an outlook for the growth opportunities coming from these changes for your industry and members.

Audience takeaways:

  • Outlook for outcome of US House and Senate midterm elections
  • Key policy changes on legislation, trade and regulations impacting your industry
  • Growth opportunities created by the changes and key trends driving the economic future
