This year's insightful conversation focuses on the supply chain, inflation, the "Great Resignation," and what the economic future holds for the country and Southern California.

Thornberg says this is a "time of phenomenal uncertainty" and offers his insight on when the economy might improve. Listeners can learn:

  • The true impact of stimulating the economy.

  • How long inflation may be with us.

  • What needs to be done with the bond market.

  • Why we're having a backlog at the ports and supply chain problems.

  • What businesses are going to have to do regarding labor shortages.

  • If the US stops importing from China, what should be done instead.

  • The biggest issue the US has: a disconnect between what our policymakers are discussing versus ground-level realities.
