Speaker Andrew Busch on the Election Outcome & Beyond
02 Nov 2020
Speaker Andrew Busch was the first Chief Market Intelligence Officer for the U.S. government at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. Recently, he has been researching the different scenarios of the potential outcomes of this year’s election. In his latest findings, he shares insights and provides the one outcome most likely to cause great uncertainty and disruption to the markets. Bush discusses why stocks can rally with Biden, the Trump vs. Biden tax plans, and more.
As CMIO, Busch was charged with improving and enhancing the government’s understanding of the markets. He provided briefings to White House, U.S. House and U.S. Senate staffers on a wide range of issues including the economy, stock market direction, interest rates and China's influence on the global commodity markets. Now, the outcome of the election could have the largest swing in economic policy in our lifetimes. Banks, insurers and tech will likely see regulatory shifts that may disrupt their business models. Any form of a split Congress/Presidency will contain major challenges across the entire economy. In his talks, Busch tackles all of this and answers the key questions: what does it mean for your industry and how you can prepare?
