At this year's NFPA Economic Outlook Conference, a new viewpoint was presented and it is new because the presenter is new to the conference. John Walker is the Chairman and Chief Economist of Oxford (England) Economics. He is responsible for global economic analysis, forecasting, and consultancy activities.
The five key points of hus presentation were: the recovery has been strong so far but ..., companies have driven the cycle and well be vital for recovery, currency stories are key policy background, commodities prices are critical, and government debt is now at the forefront. Mr. Walker gave several global perspectives to the current economic situation.
This was a great addition to the lineup of speakers. He can be reached at http://www.oxfordeconomics.com/
