CFA Society Orlando is pleased to welcome Michel Falk as our keynote Putting Investors First Month speaker. Falk will be speaking about his book, “Let’s All Learn How to Fish…. To Sustain Long-Term Economic Growth” Today’s economic growth challenges will become greater in the future because of the world’s aging population, fertility trends and current levels, and current entitlement policies. Those challenges could be overcome, however, with thoughtful public policies and a culture that fosters responsibility and appreciation. In his book, Falk reconsiders what makes us “healthy, wealthy, and wise.” It focuses on how we might reimagine health care, retirement, and education policies to usher in a new ERA (from Entitlement to Responsibility with Appreciation) of sustainable long-term economic growth All attendees will received complimentary copies of Falk’s book.
