Program Description:
"Expansion versus Austerity: 2012 Financial Markets Outlook"

Jack Ablin, Chief Investment Officer for Harris Private Bank, will lay out his global macro strategy for navigating the uncertainty surrounding the ever-changing investment markets and the global economy. Looking at the world from 30,000 feet, Ablin will help identify developing economic trends, both in the U.S. and abroad, and their implications on public policy.
