The Impact of Foreign Policy on the Value of the Dollar.

Wednesday, May 15 @ 3:30 pm - 6:00 pm • Organized By World Trade Center - Kansas City
4801 Main Street, Suite 400, Kansas City, MO 64112



What do monetary policy in Europe, Brexit, and instability in the Korean Peninsula have to do with your purchasing power? Likely, more than you think. As cities across the U.S. celebrate World Trade Week, join the Kansas City International Steering Committee to celebrate Greater Kansas City’s 6th annual World Trade Day, an event focused on the importance of global trade and the recognition of our region's international business community. In addition to networking with the international business and affairs community, we will have a broad discussion on the intersection of geopolitics, economics, trade agreements, and how all of it affects the value of the U.S. dollar.

About the Speaker
Marc Chandler, a leading expert on global monetary policy and Chief Market Strategist at Bannockburn Global Forex, will lead our discussion. One of the most widely respected and quoted currency experts, Chandler has been making sense (and making fun) of the global capital markets for more than 30 years. As a keen observer of the interconnection of international politics and economics, Marc appears daily in the financial press – CNBC, CNBC Asia, FOX Business, Bloomberg TV and Radio, Barron’s, The Financial Times, The WashingtonPost, and more – where he provides his colorful take on the day’s global financial and economic news.
