Upcoming February Webinar: 2024 – A year when economics will play second fiddle to elections

We are delighted to welcome Jim Power and Chris Johns to take part in our next Toolkit session on Tuesday, February 27th at 9AM. 

76 states will have elections of one kind or another during 2024. Some analysts think that will be the largest number in history. A lot of those elections could be very consequential.
We start the year with Taiwanese elections – the outcome could well provoke China, widely thought to be preparing for a possible war by the end of the decade.
We end with the possible return of Trump. How bad could that be? Unimaginably bad.
