The Future Perfect: How AI, Robotics, VR, and AR Will Combine to Create an Absolutely Fantastic Future

We've seen technology move in step function shifts every 10 to 15 years. We had the PC in the early 80s, the Internet in the mid-90s, and the smartphone in the mid-to-late 2000s. We're due for the next step function change in technology and we think this one will be the biggest yet. It will be created by a combination of artificial intelligence, robotics, virtual reality, and augmented reality.

Stimulus and Business Confidence Revisited? Could Economic Growth and Markets Follow?

The American economy and US corporate profits are likely to continue to endure slow growth for many domestic reasons: Rising savings rate, intrusive and anti-growth government policies, intransigent domestic politics, massive entitlement and debt loads, and an unsolved healthcare system, to name a few. Internationally, the US (and indeed, the world) faces economic slowdowns from Brexit and the EU, from a deterioration in China's prospects, from a weakening of the oil sector, and from the uncertainty introduced by the many geopolitical hot spots. It is highly likely that these discouraging economic/geopolitical conditions will encourage even more monetary and even fiscal stimulus. The talk will, of course, discuss the economic and markets background, and also attempt to present suggestions on how to resolve the adverse conditions so describedorder to ramp up US and world GDP growth. Attend to learn: what are the relevant causes of the sluggish world-wide economic outlook, how might we change the culture in Washington to reduce uncertainty and improve confidence in the private sector, and how to invest in publicly traded markets, private markets, and inflation hedges to cope with and take advantage of today's environment.

Trump World

The US experienced a radical regime change on November 8, 2016. The Trump administration is more populist and less progressive than the Obama administration. The former is full of dealmakers, the latter was full of community organizers, lawyers, and economists. How are stocks, bonds, currencies, and commodities likely to fare under Trump's America First policies? Might Election Day have marked the end of the New Normal of secular stagnation and the resumption of the Old Normal with stronger growth, but higher inflation and interest rates? How might Fed policy change with more Trump appointees and once Fed Chair Janet Yellen leaves at the beginning of next year? Might Trump's bilateral approach to trade save globalization from the populist anger at the multilateral free trade system? How much might Trump's tax and regulatory reforms boost corporate earnings?
