How do you anticipate future consequences of policies at a time of political and technological upheaval? We’re living through one such era – with President Trump and Congressional Republicans attempting to overhaul taxation, regulations and health care, while at the same time tech entrepreneurs are paving the way for a transportation revolution.

Please join me for a daylong conference, “Policy in the Trump Era”, in Olympia, Washington on November 13th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. I will be joined by Peter Evangelakis, Ph.D., REMI Economist, as we examine today’s most pressing topics from the vantage of dynamic economic analysis.

We will address the employment and other economic effects of major policies:

  • Amazon HQ 2.0: At What Price?: Amazon is looking for a home for its second headquarters, and it is evaluating the demographics, labor supply, and quality of life of possible cities. A winning city may need to sweeten the deal with tax incentives. The question for officials: Is attracting Amazon to your region worth the investment?
  • Transportation Innovation: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly: The auto industry is undergoing significant changes. Advancements in automation and safety will have major economic effects on manufacturing regions.
  • Family Medical Leave: Economic Case Study: We will use an example study from the District of Columbia to demonstrate the economic modeling of labor policies.
  • Immigration Policy: Reform? Deport? Economic Effects: Federal immigration policy is a hot-button topic that stirs strong emotions. But objective economic policy analysis can clarify the issue, and show differences between comprehensive and enforcement-only options.

We’re offering this conference at no charge, although we ask that you register in advance. If you would like to attend this event, please email Brian Boyd at brian.boyd@remi.com, contact us by phone at (413) 549-1169, or complete the form below to register online.
