Obamanomics 2013: The Inside Story On The White House, The Fed And CongressFormer White House adviser Todd Buchholz takes you on a tour of Washington power centers. Who’s pushing the buttons on economic policy and industry regulation? Can President Obama reshape the economic and business landscape while facing up to a GOP-controlled Congress? Will the disasters of the “Great Recession” create a backlash against trade and investment? Can Ben Bernanke handle the bitter criticism over QE2? Will new environmental regulations invigorate or cripple the business climate? Todd Buchholz will help you figure out whether the shenanigans in Washington make life easier or tougher for your company.
New Ideas From Dead CEOsTodd G. Buchholz brings to life history’s greatest CEOs—from Ray Kroc to Akio Morita, Estee Lauder to Tom Watson Sr.—and shows how their lives, leadership and lessons can inform and inspire us in today’s chaotic marketplace. How did Sam Walton help create the “scissors economy” and go from being the owner of a single dime store to the CEO of Wal-Mart? How did Estée Lauder, a working-class woman from Queens, convince the shoppers at Saks to buy her cosmetics? How did the San Francisco earthquake of 1906 eventually lead to A.P. Giannini’s success as America’s greatest banker? Todd answers these questions and shows today’s business managers how to deploy their entrepreneurial secrets to benefit their companies in today’s hypercompetitive global economy. Todd uses his experience as a White House economist, Harvard scholar, and Wall Street professional to show investors what kinds of CEOs to invest with, and what kinds of companies to steer away from. In addition, Todd lays out a forecast for the economy and the financial markets. The audience will come away from the presentation with a fresh understanding of the competitive pressures we face today, and a roadmap to finding success.
