"Fight Announcer" Dr. Robert Dye will provide an economic outlook for 2019. "Fight Referee" Traci Courter will share the fight's rules of engagement, a coin flip will occur and a rousing round of prognostication from some of our association's greatest minds will follow. Judge for yourself and weigh in with your own outlook as we discuss:

What direction will interest rates move in 2019?
When would the Fed begin to reduce interest rates?
Could a strengthening dollar lead to an emerging market debt crisis?
What policy measures might the Fed deploy in the event of a downturn?
And much more…

Real time polling will occur, so bring your smart phone and let the boxing bell sound.
