Steve Forbes, Chairman/CEO, Forbes, Inc.; Editor-in-Chief, Forbes; Author, A New Birth of Freedom

Leading economic prognosticator Forbes says the upcoming presidential election is the most critical since 1980. At that time, Ronald Reagan defeated incumbent Jimmy Carter, ushering in dramatic new policies that would set the course of this country for the next quarter-century. What course does Forbes believe the country should take to end the current credit crisis? Will he promote a flat tax, medical savings accounts and a new Social Security system as he did for his 1996 and 2000 presidential platforms? Join us as we discuss what’s next for the U.S. economy.
