Event Speakers

Bruce Yandle

Distinguished Adjunct Fellow


The nation's economy at mid-year is operating like a three-lane expressway with one lane closed. GDP growth is breaking 2.0% when it should be 3.0%. But worse than that, the cars moving in the two open lanes are running on borrowed fuel that will someday have to be paid back.

This session offers –

  • Data-based insights into the what and why of the slow economy.
  • Some good news about sectors and places that are prospering.
  • Forecasts for the rest of the year
  • A brief Public Choice interpretation of IRS audit actions and other regulatory activity.
