From the implications of a debt-chocking, slower Chinese economy to a Eurozone sitting on a deflationary precipice to a still over-leveraged raft of homeownership poking holes in the American dream, questions arise about the health and resilience of the US and global economies.
In a daylong deep-dive, The Atlantic's Summit on the Economy will take stock of the factors that drive economic conditions at home and abroad. With more than 300 policymakers, cabinet members, CEOs, financial services experts, top newsmakers and media voices in attendance, the event promises to bring together some of the most notable economic minds for a series of intimate onstage panel discussions, interviews and case studies.
Possible topics will include:
Are domestic and global economies tilting in healthy or risky directions?
New trade efforts and the debate about labor and environmental impacts
Are reverses in deleveraging kicking risk factors higher?
Taking stock of the stakeholders that drive the economic equation
Growing economic networks of the unbanked
