First Trust Event: The Antidote to Conventional Wisdom

25 April 2019 - 17:00 - 20:00

Since the Great Recession and Panic of 2008, conventional wisdom has trumpeted a near-endless stream of consternation and concern.  Cries that “The End is Nigh” have rung throughout the expansion.  And whenever the market dips towards correction territory, the wails and gnashing of teeth reach a fever pitch.  Thankfully, time has proven conventional wisdom wrong time and again.  Through it all, Brian Wesbury has been a voice of reason. An antidote to conventional wisdom.  The economy is (still) better than you think…let him tell you why.
