Committee for Economic Development 2018 Fall Policy Conference

The Committee for Economic Development (CED) was founded in 1942 during the Second World War by a group of business leaders who were concerned about the future of the global economy.

Today, CED continues to have an impact through its trusted research and advocacy. Comprised of the nation’s leading business executives, CED lends its voice and expertise to pressing economic and educational issues. 

Our value

Each year CED holds a Spring and a Fall Policy Conference for which we are delighted to provide a briefing book.

For the 2018 Fall Policy Conference, which takes place on 14 November in Washington DC, our briefing book focuses on some of the major issues raised in the Conference agenda. As CED continues to play a significant role in supporting policy-makers at home and abroad by delivering “well-researched analysis and reasoned solutions to our nation’s most critical issues”, we hope this briefing book will provide a better understanding of some of the issues and challenges CED seeks to address.

Some of the topics we analyse include:

  • The political costs of proposed US spending cuts;
  • tariffs and trade wars;
  • the foreign policy implications of fuel self-sufficiency;
  • the ways in which the midterm results shape policy over the next two years

We are also pleased to provide delegates of the Fall Policy Conference with two weeks' complimentary access to the Oxford Analytica Daily Brief
