IPA announced three new roundtables as a part of a robust agenda for IPA Summit 2024. Taking place this May 1-3, 2024, in Washington, D.C., the event is the premier gathering to discuss the intersection of business, regulatory and policy issues ahead of the alternative investments industry.

Leading off our roundtable discussions, IPA will welcome Tara M. Sinclair, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Macroeconomics in the Office of Economic Policy, U.S. Department of Treasury for a discussion on the department’s macroeconomic outlook.

A full list of the conversations are listed below, and you can also take in the full summit agenda by clicking the link here: https://ipa.com/summit2024/#agenda

Roundtable with the Department of Treasury, A Conversation on the Macroeconomic Outlook 

  • The strong recovery from the Covid recession resulted from unprecedented policy action that brought the United States from an unemployment rate that peaked at nearly 15 percent in April of 2020 to an over 50-year low of 3.4 percent by January of 2023. But there is more work to do.  Our economy can continue to create more and better jobs with the right investments. This talk will provide an overview of the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s macroeconomic outlook.  Dr. Tara M. Sinclair will discuss some of the context and economic thinking behind the policies used in the recent economic recovery and where the economy stands today.  She will then turn to the longer-term macroeconomic outlook, specifically focusing on modern supply-side policies that can grow the economy in the long run.
