Ron Insana, "From Here to Normality"

VIP Q&A
12:45 p.m. - 1:15 p.m. 



TMA is thrilled to announce the one of two TMA Distressed Investing Conference keynotes, Ron Insana. Insana is a contributor to CNBC and MSNBC. 

As the world seeks to regain some semblance of pre-COVID economic and political equilibrium, so many questions remain. Certainly, some things will bounce back – but which ones? Will others be forever changed (think work- from-home, the influence of new digital trends, our travel and entertainment, and social lives)?

None of this means the U.S. won’t ultimately recover. In fact, with the proper policies and incentives, the economy of the next 50 years could be, quite conceivably, far stronger than the economy of the last 50 years. Against that backdrop, then, how should business leaders and investors plan intelligently for an America that may re-globalize, re-engage its allies, and reject the projection of military power among its adversaries?

During his keynote, Insana will offer a top-down view of the world as it will likely evolve in the months ahead while recognizing the bottom-up developments that will affect the day-to-day lives from Main Street to Wall Street.
