FORT WORTH LUNCH:
The Antidote to Conventional Wisdom
We are pleased to invite you to a lunch meeting in Fort Worth on April 25th, at which Brian Wesbury will speak on the antidote to conventional wisdom.
From Brexit, to Trump, the Italian Referendum, to the rise of a Thatcherite in France; the world is changing in massive ways. Add in activist central banks, bloated bureaucracies, and acrimonious politics – it’s no wonder investors are nervous. Will the aging economic expansions stumble? Will the bull market in U.S. stocks continue? Are inflation and rising interest rates in the cards? Brian Wesbury promises to cut through the noise to provide a solid, actionable game plan for investors in the years ahead. Wesbury called the bull market in U.S. stocks starting in 2009. He's ready to tell you where they will go from here.
