Arranged around the theme of “2020 Vision: Examining Policy Prescriptions in an Election Year,” NABE’s 36th Annual Economic Policy Conference explores competing visions and strategies for achieving the dual goals of economic growth and domestic security, as well as key challenges for policymakers including heightened tensions around globalization and trade alliances, demographic and political shifts, and rising economic nationalism. Against the backdrop of the buildup toward a pivotal national election, the conference will provide a forum for policymakers, business leaders, and economists to engage in candid and practical discussions of the challenges faced in fiscal, monetary, and regulatory policy arenas.
The NABE Policy Conference regularly attracts 500+ economists, analysts, policymakers, and business leaders. The largest annual public event in Washington to focus solely on economic policy, the conference tackles policy issues through the pragmatic lens of business leaders and economists. Join us!
