Washington, D.C. – Washington may have temporarily averted the debt ceiling disaster, but in the eyes of Wall Street, the debt ceiling still poses a great danger to the world economy during a time of fiscal austerity.
The Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) will host a panel of distinguished financial market experts, Wall Street investors and opinion makers for a discussion on the debt ceiling and its potential consequences for the markets and the larger economy on Wednesday, February 6, 2013 at 10:00AM EST. Former World Bank President Robert Zoellick will make keynote remarks.
Greg Ip, the U.S. economics editor for The Economist will moderate the discussion with Zoellick; Beth Ann Bovino, Senior Economist at Standard & Poors; Craig Drill, President at Craig Drill Capital Corporation; and Michael Hanson, Senior U.S. Economist at Bank of America Merill Lynch Global Research. BPC’s Steve Bell will make opening remarks.
The event is open to the press but space is limited. Press interested in attending should RSVP to email@example.com.
