In her keynote presentation at the SheSource Luncheon, Regan opens by saying “I’ve always cared about issues facing women… but it took on a whole new dimension about seven months ago.” She explains that she gave birth to two twin girls, which made her “think about the issues that women face in a whole new way.” She discusses how being a mother has made her think more about the challenges that women face in the workforce. “My mother was a journalist herself,” she says, “and she faced a lot of challenges… She had to fight a lot of stereotypes to be successful in her job.”
Regan goes on to share something that her mother used to tell her, “You can be anything you want to be.” She tells a story about an experience she had while in Catholic school as a child. She says that a priest asked all of the students what they wanted to be when they grew up, and she said, “I want to be a priest.” She says that the priest laughed and told her she couldn’t be a priest because she was a girl. “I am happy that at least in the career path that I chose… we certainly have the Catholic Church beat when it comes to gender equality,” she says.
Regan uses her experience as a business journalist, author and television host to help make sense of the increasingly treacherous economic and political landscape in the U.S. She takes a critical look at the programs she feels are weighing on our economic future, and walks audiences through the history of national debt. She also helps audiences to examine their personal finance options and protect themselves from the dangers of the current record low interest rates.
A Look at the Economy: What Needs to Happen for Americans to Prosper Again
With unemployment still high, deficit and debt issues dominating the headlines and growth at a standstill, it is clear that the economy is the number one issue on the minds of the American people. The lack of positive outcomes after trying a variety of approaches to spur growth has many becoming increasingly frustrated and asking why so much money has been spent with so few results. An experienced business journalist, author and television host who has covered the intersection of Washington and Wall Street for the last decade, Trish Regan helps you make sense of the increasingly treacherous economic and political landscape. How is Washington influencing our financial future? How are current tax policies affecting economic growth and what steps should government be taking to encourage private enterprise and grow the economy? Regan takes a critical look at government spending and the entitlement programs weighing on our economic future—arguing that the private sector is the lifeblood of the American economy and that it must be reenergized in order for American’s to prosper. She shows where the system is failing, and stresses the importance of finding long term, sustainable solutions in order to rebuild the American economy –one dollar and one job at a time.
The Debt Bomb: Could History Repeat Itself?
With a debt crisis threatening to derail Europe’s economy, what does it mean the world’s still fragile recovery? What countries could be the next dominoes to fall? How did Greece, Portugal, Ireland and Spain wind up in such a perilous position—and what are the similarities and differences between these nations and the United States’ borrowing habits? Trish Regan takes you through history to show that the most perilous threat faced by great nations has been economic distress—not military conquest. Debt destroys empires. A look at how investors, businesses and policy makers should prepare for the coming debt bomb and what it means for the global economy.
The Fed and You: What Low Interests Rates Mean for Inflation, Growth and the Dollar
With interest rates at record lows, what does this mean for the average American and for the business community? Are low interest rates contributing to higher prices while simultaneously driving the value of the U.S. dollar lower? Is the Fed hurting the U.S. economy by weakening consumer spending power or are these record low rates truly necessary to spur growth? Regan examines the case against low interest rates, showing you how to protect yourself from potential short and long term consequences.
