Around the Institute
On Wednesday, March 1, World Policy Institute is hosting its next World Economic Roundtable on “The Trump Economic Program: Where Do We Go From Here?” featuring Anthony Scaramucci, a senior adviser to President Trump. Scaramucci will discuss what to expect from the president’s economic agenda in the months ahead and explore its likely effects on economic growth, employment, and America’s investment and trade relations with other major economies. Scaramucci was the founder of the global investment firm SkyBridge Capital and served as co-managing partner before selling the firm this January in order to take a position in the Trump administration.
