The Economy Ahead: Opportunities Abound

Where is this economy headed and how will it impact you and your business?

In his talks, Ron lays out scenarios for the economic, business, and investing future – looking at the macro forces currently at play and identifying what happened at periods in history when the similar forces converged. While history doesn’t repeat itself, it rhymes, as the old axiom goes. This long view helps Ron, a pioneer in broadcast financial news since 1984, provide clarity when assessing complex economic environment – connecting the dots and creating a coherent and actionable set of insights for audiences looking to plan for the future.

The Message Of The Markets | What Are They Saying About The Future?

How can you protect what you have and find new opportunities in this investment climate? Every day the world’s markets are speaking — shouting, really — boldly predicting the future. In fact, they are reflecting information not yet revealed to the general public.

In ancient times, investors and merchants met to buy and sell goods – and to exchange information and gossip. This information is reflected in the prices charged for those goods, whether it was news of war in a far-flung region that will cut off the gold supply or a crop failure that will make wheat scarce. Today, tradable securities are the proxies for goods and services and act in exactly the same fashion. In order to understand what the markets are saying, you have to know how to listen to and interpret the messages they are sending.

In this talk Ron Insana shows audiences how to understand the signals put out by the markets, and protect their economic future.

The Next Wave: New Technologies That Will Transform Your Future

Navigating the post-Covid world will continue to be a whiplash-inducing experience. The new technologies and medical breakthroughs that are coming will make things even more challenging. 5G, AI, robotics, machine learning, regenerative medicine, and more are all racing towards us. Soon, mountains of data will come more forcefully than ever, changing even further what is possible in business. The biggest change of all is how quickly new technologies become ubiquitous.

Ron looks at the most impactful new technologies and the impact they’ll have. They include experts who are already working on creating human organs from stem cells printed on 3-D printers…and researchers working to stop the aging clock altogether. Experts believe that among millennials, the first person to live to 150 has already been born. Are we ready for that future?
