9:45 am - KEYNOTE ADDRESS: SURVIVING STAGFLATION AND BEYOND

The last three years have provided very little economic benefit for the average U.S. citizen. The current administration has performed abysmally in terms of growth, employment and debt.  Moreover, this difficult environment is likely to last at least until the outcome of the 2012 election becomes visible.  What’s an investor to do?  Come hear Victor “Trader Vic” Sperandeo’s take on the topic--Keynesian economics, monetary policy and more--and how you should position your portfolio now for what lies ahead.
