America’s Economic Future
The United States is fighting to come back from the deepest recession since the Great Depression. What economic policies would be most helpful to create jobs and economic growth? Can America compete globally with our current tax system, two trillion dollars of annual government regulation and costly new health care policy? What are the inflationary implications of our current spending levels, monetary easing and national indebtedness? Dr. Asmus will give his views on America’s three unstoppable trends and outlook for the future.
Globalization: International Prosperity and Its Impact on America

Healing Health Care in America
