Are We Really Worse Off?

Session Speakers
Session Description

Why Attend
Explore how today’s prevailing sentiments about the economic well-being of Americans leads to sub-optimal investment planning, and misses the practical meaning of economic data for clients. 

Session Details
The sentiment that most Americans are losing ground economically is widespread. Indeed, the most common measures of economic performance and, by extension, living standards, show troubling trends. But these measures are incomplete: they fail to capture the true economy and what economic trends practically mean for investors. Indeed, as we transition from the “terrestrial” to the “cyber” economy, the schism between the numbers and reality threaten to widen.  In this session, in which we will encourage audience participation, we will explore the following:

  • What the numbers don’t tell us and put their interpretation into perspective
  • How incomplete measurements can lead consumers and investors to make poor financial planning choices
  • If wrongly interpreting the data should matter to individual investors, on a day-to-day level
