The Economic Outlook:  Big Picture and Current Trends

by Jim Kneser

Monday, August 31 2015
7:00 - 8:45 PM

With the domestic economy still advancing only in fits and starts, Jim Kneser will discuss some of the competing theories about the causes of slow growth. He will focus on labor markets being less robust than is claimed and that FRB Chair Yellen faces a dilemma as a result, despite recent hints of a rate rise by yearend. He may also explore the important long-term issues of economic inequality and mobility--the American Dream. The presentation will include looks at key overseas issues such as the postponed Greece crisis, the outlook for oil, and other emerging topics.


Jim Kneser, popular in his previous AAII chapter appearances, has  for over 10 years led economics classes at the Academy for Lifelong Learning. He holds a BA in economics from Ripon College and an MBA in finance from the Wharton School. He is also a CPA and worked in private equity -- specializing in mergers, acquisitions, and corporate finance. Jim places current economic and public policy issues in proper historical context, explaining the fundamental economic principles that apply, and allows attendees to draw their own conclusions on implied action. His reviews include high praise for making economic information and ideas understandable, and for answering questions brilliantly.
