After a year that saw the end of quantitative easing, the Dow hitting record highs, and oil prices upturning national economies, we look ahead to continued challenges in financial regulation, further upheavals in energy, and navigating the uncharted path to normalization.

How are these events and currents influencing our economy, and what else lies on the horizon? At the Council for Economic Education’s 2nd Annual Vantage Point Symposium on Tuesday, March 31st, economic thought leaders from business, academia and government will present their unique insights and respond directly to your questions and ideas.

Last year’s inaugural Vantage Point Symposium was an exceptionally thought-provoking afternoon. We hope you will join us for an even better reprise. Seating is limited, so register soon to reserve your space!
