The end of 2017 marked many changes in the global economy as well as the passage of a sweeping tax reform bill in the U.S. that will undoubtedly have a lasting impact. As an organization that expands across 150 countries and territories providing audit and assurance, tax, legal, risk and financial advisory and consulting services, Deloitte has extensive experience dealing with this changing economic landscape. 
Join the Global Initiatives Council to hear from Dr. Ira Kalish, chief global economist of Deloitte. Kalish will examine the outlook for the U.S. and global economies. He will consider the recent tax reform, the Trump Administration's trade policies, the outlook for monetary policy, and the potential impact of global events. In addition, the presentation will look at the potential impact of the economic environment on global business.  
The Global Initiatives Council works to create employment opportunities throughout Southern California by increasing exports, imports and foreign investment for companies of all sizes, and for the communities in which they conduct business.
