Journalists, like everyone else, are being challenged by the quick pace of the news cycle and accelerating pace of developments across a range of spectrums. These range from important factors such as climate, technology, and media. The economic expansion is about 10 years old, recently given a lift by tax law changes. But we know the benefits of the individual tax cut begin to wane and disappear over the next couple of years, raising the risk of a recession. There are always risks and opportunities for individuals and businesses alike amid these many changes.

Learning objectives: 

-Understanding of where the U.S. economy and financial markets stand at this point in time.
-Ability to identify what are the major financial challenges for Americans individually and for the nation as a whole
