After meeting some folks this evening, I can tell that I won't agree with some of what will be discussed this week. But that's good. Sound analysis involves hearing out people you might disagree with. Whether you're on board or not, I'm hoping everyone can learn something from this gathering.

David Walker, former Comptroller General of the U.S.; President, Pete Peterson Foundation

John Mauldin, prolific author; President, Millennium Wave  

Byron King, Outstanding Investments


Vitaliy Katseneslson, author; Director of Research, IMA
