The Quad Cities Chamber and RSM US LLP will host a Middle Market Economic Update featuring RSM Chief Economist Joe Brusuelas on Tuesday, June 27 from 7:30 – 9:00 a.m. at Hotel Blackhawk, 200 E. 3rd St., Davenport.
Brusuelas will discuss his take on the first 100-plus days of the new presidential administration and the impact on the economy, as well as what middle market companies might anticipate for the future, specifically touching on topics such as tax reform, trade policy, infrastructure spending and a border adjustment tax.
“Middle-market companies are really the heart of the U.S. economy, responsible for one-third of all jobs and $6 trillion in annual revenues,” Brusuelas said. “While a lot of focus gets put on Fortune 1000 companies; clearly, it’s important that business leaders reflect on the impact of economic policy and tax reform on middle-market companies, of which 40% are privately owned.”
RSM conducts quarterly surveys of middle-market executives nationwide to gauge their attitudes related to a wide variety of business and economic issues. Brusuelas will share the latest results of RSM’s Middle Market Business Index, and provide his take on what we might expect out of Washington this year.
Joseph Brusuelas has over 20 years of experience in finance and economics and specializes in analyzing the U.S. monetary policy, labor markets, fiscal policy, economic indicators and the condition of the U.S. consumer. Prior to joining RSM in July 2014, Brusuelas spent four years as a senior economist at Bloomberg, LP and the Bloomberg Briefs newsletter group. As co-founder of the award winning Bloomberg Economic Brief, Brusuelas was named as one of the 26 economists to be followed by the Huffington Post. Brusuelas regularly appears on Bloomberg Television, Bloomberg Radio, and is frequently looked to as an expert by the financial press on the U.S. and global economies.
