About the Program
While the current fiscal course of the U.S. government may be unsustainable, what does that actually mean for our business and personal futures? What are the odds and possible consequences of a U.S. default? What can be done to prevent it, or to deal with it? Our speaker, Marc Hodak has applied his financial, historical, and governance expertise, as well as his access to the best research on these matters, to put all the pieces together as the basis of a discussion of this important topic. His findings, corroborated by a growing number of financial and academic experts, are surprising and disturbing, and his presentation is bound to stir some heated conversation.
