2016 Economic Outlook Featuring Professor Robert Aliber

The University of Chicago Booth of Business cordially invites members of the Dallas Business Club to join us for our 2016 Economic Outlook presentation.

Can Professor Aliber top his predication in 2015 that oil prices would plunge? Will the U.S. economy continue to grow in 2016? Will interest rates and inflation finally rise after years of easy money policies? And will Prof. Aliber ever be welcome to speak in Houston again?

We’ll hear the views of Professor Aliber on these critical issues that will impact financial markets and Texas businesses in 2016. This event is a chance for DBC members to ask Bob Aliber about the future impact of the Chinese economy, the future of oil or other commodities, or your personal financial decisions.

Professor Aliber has been outspoken for decades on international financial markets, and has regularly shared his views with the Chicago Booth Alumni Club of Dallas-Ft. Worth for many years, where he previously correctly predicted the collapse of the U.S. housing market and fall of the price of gold.
