What You Need to Know about the Economy You Will Be Entering
LUNCHEON 11:30 a.m.; PROGRAM 12:00 p.m.

Michael R. Strain and Stan Veuger are economists at the American Enterprise Institute and are speaking to college students across the country about how to prepare for a rapidly changing economy. In this increasingly tech-driven, complex, and global economy, what skills do you need to focus on in order to compete and succeed? What does the current federal fiscal position mean for you? How should you prepare for the long-term issues the economy is facing? How do the politics of the economy factor in? They will address these questions and more in the context of the current political environment in this discussion-based Ath talk. This program is sponsored by the Executive Council of the American Enterprise Institute's On Campus Program at CMC.

Michael R. Strain's academic research fits broadly within labor economics and applied microeconomics. Strain began his career in the research group of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
