Economic Outlook Speeches


I have enjoyed your presentations at IWCS for many years.  They are the highlight of the show for me.  I hear a lot about the economy on TV and the internet, and I don’t know who to believe.  However, your presentations are straightforward, honest, and supported by lots of data and analysis.  I always believe your presentations.
