DR. ROBERT WESCOTT
President
Keybridge Research, LLC
Robert F. Wescott is Founder and President of Keybridge Research LLC, an economic consulting firm in Washington, DC, that has served major financial institutions, Fortune 500 companies, and leading business associations since 2001. Dr. Wescott concentrates on global macroeconomics, financial risks, and public policy research. He provides global asset allocation advice to high-profile international financial firms and is a frequent speaker to business and financial audiences around the world. Dr. Wescott also testifies as an expert before U.S. Congressional committees on economic, financial, and energy policy matters.
 
From 1999 until 2001, Wescott served as Special Assistant to the U.S. President for Economic Policy at the White House. As senior economic adviser to President Clinton, he helped to develop Administration policies toward G-7 countries, Russia, China, India, other key emerging-market economies, and the international financial system. During 1993-94, Wescott was Chief Economist at the President's Council of Economic Advisers, where he developed the Administration's U.S. macroeconomic forecasts and performed policy analysis. He helped write and edit the Economic Report of the President. From 1994 to 1999, Wescott was Deputy Division Chief at the International Monetary Fund. In the IMF's Research Department he helped produce the World Economic Outlook, the Fund's semi-annual review of world economic prospects, key risks, and policy challenges. In the European Department he was responsible for Eastern European countries in transition. He participated in IMF missions to Japan, China, Poland, and a number of countries in Western Europe.
 
Between 1982 and 1993 Wescott was Senior Vice President and Chief Economist at WEFA Group (now IHS Global Insight), the economic forecasting and consulting firm, where he oversaw all forecasting, economic modeling, consulting, and research activities for the U.S. Group. Before that he managed the firm's Global Economic Outlook Committee and coordinated the firm's international forecasting from centers in North America, Europe, and Asia. For nearly 10 years he wrote WEFA's flagship monthly U.S. economic newsletter and he also co-authored its quarterly international economic newsletter. During these years he served as the firm's primary public spokesman with clients and the media. In 1989-90, Wescott lived in Japan, where he helped the University of Pennsylvania establish the International Center for the Study of East Asia Development (ICSEAD) in Kitakyushu. ICSEAD does quantitative economic modeling and research on East Asian economies.
 
Dr. Wescott has published research papers in the areas of macroeconomics, fiscal policy, global saving patterns and interest rates, inflation targeting, the credit crunch in Japan, energy policy, and economic development, especially issues related to globalization. Wescott holds a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Pennsylvania, 1983.        
         
PETER ZEIHAN
Geopolitical Strategist
Zeihan's worldview marries the realities of geography and populations to a deep understanding of how global politics impact markets and economic trends, helping industry leaders navigate today's complex mix of geopolitical risks and opportunities. With a keen eye toward what will drive tomorrow's headlines, his irreverent approach transforms topics that are normally dense and heavy into accessible, relevant takeaways for audiences of all types.
 
In his career, Zeihan has ranged from working for the US State Department in Australia, to the DC think tank community, to helping develop the analytical models for Stratfor, one of the world's premier private intelligence companies. Mr. Zeihan founded his own firm - Zeihan on Geopolitics - in 2012 in order to provide a select group of clients with direct, custom analytical products. Today those clients represent a vast array of sectors including energy majors, financial institutions, business associations, agricultural interests, universities and the U.S. military.
 
His freshman book, The Accidental Superpower, forecasts the coming collapse of the global order. It debuted in 2014.
 
His newest project, The Absent Superpower, published in December 2016. It highlights what comes next.
