EVENT DETAILS

As we continue to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic and our cities and communities attempt to rebound, the societal shake-ups created by the pandemic also continue to shape the health of the U.S. economy in ways that are sure to resonate for years to come. Longtime financial observers survey how the economy has changed in recent years, discuss the impact of the Biden administration’s approach to today’s economic challenges, and forecast how the national economic climate might adjust to a post-Covid world.

James Grant is the founder and editor of Grant’s Interest Rate Observer. Byron R. Wien (moderator) is vice chairman of Private Wealth Solutions at Blackstone. They are trustees of the New-York Historical Society.
