Ron Insana’s Speech Topics

  • The Economy Ahead: Opportunities Abound

    Where is this economy headed and how will it impact you and your business?

    Big picture: Ron Insana says it’s time to buckle up because the future may look a lot more like the past than anything we’ve experienced since the 1980s. A student of economic and markets history, Ron authored four books on these subjects. In his talks, Ron lays out scenarios for the economic, business, and investing future – looking at the macro forces currently at play and identifying what happened during periods in history when similar forces converged. While history doesn’t repeat itself, it rhymes, as the old axiom goes. This long view helps Ron, a pioneer in broadcast financial news since 1984, provide clarity when assessing complex economic environments – connecting the dots and creating a coherent and actionable set of insights for audiences looking to plan for the future. Ron tailors this presentation to suit each audience. Sample themes:

    • Finding optimism in an economy that feels so perilous
    • De-globalization update
    • Policy, politics, and geopolitics: What to know in the year ahead
    • The AI revolution: How the economy will be radically transformed
    • Investing in a post-zero interest rate world
    • The future of cryptocurrencies
    • How climate change will alter the economy
    • Cultural destabilization’s economic impact
  • Outlook 2024: What Threatens the Goldilocks Economy in the Year Ahead?

    Between now and next year’s presidential election, there is no end to the variables that can affect the economy, financial markets, and the geo-political landscape and each will have an effect on the others. In “Outlook 2024” Ron Insana reviews where the domestic and global economy stand today, how they’re likely to hold up for the remainder of the year, and how looming issues in 2024 could alter the trajectory of expected growth, inflation, and financial market performance. While it recently looked like a “Goldilocks” environment for the US economy, three bears could emerge to eat her porridge in the next 6-12 months.

  • Navigating the Not-Normal Economy

    As the world grapples with renewed global political instability, inflation, broken supply chains, economic turmoil, and living with Covid long term, Ron Insana is an experienced voice of economic reason. Properly assessing the current environment is vital to determining what to do next. A savvy trend-watcher, Ron looks at today through the lens of economic history. He offers insights to help business leaders and investors plan for the future in a world beset by constant change. 

    Ron tailors this presentation to suit each audience and can focus on:

    • How global political instability sparked a move to de-globalize and what does it mean?
    • The outlook for business growth; which sectors are winning, which are stuck?
    • Comparing prospects: Main Street vs. Wall Street
    • How to protect what you have and find new opportunities
    • Markets always send signals; what is the message of the markets right now?
    • Washington policy moves: how they’ll impact business and investments
    • The future of crypto and NFTs
    • The next wave of new tech: 5G, AI, robotics, regenerative medicine, and more
