State of U.S. Economy, Feat: Duncan Niederauer

April 9, 2018

tndc welcomed former CEO of the New York Stock Exchange, Duncan Niederauer, for an analysis of the current state of the US economy and the so-called "Trade Wars" we are currently experiencing. Much of the volatility experienced in the last 18 months we find attributable to the communication methods used by our nation's leadership, but we argue there is some merit to the "America First" policy being implemented. We also briefly touch on CEO Activism in today's polarized political climate, as well as anti-trust issues as large acquisitions are proposed in several industries.
