The Economic Puzzle
Noted economic thinkers, business leaders, psychologists and other experts will tackle some of our most formidable economic challenges: chronic unemployment, unsustainable budget deficits, the right balance of financial regulations, and the incontrovertible relationship between the US economy and global markets. We’ll also take a special look at the elusive albeit critical role of consumer behavior and how human psychology and market forces intersect, upending traditional theories of a rational marketplace.
