The Government's Perspective, Striking a Balance Between Short and Long-Term Needs, at Public Finance Leaders Forum 2011

|Includes: Dover Motorsports, Inc. (DVD)
Golden Networking's Public Finance Leaders Forum 2011, "Navigating Uncharted Territories After S&P's U.S. Debt Downgrade from its Gilt-Edged AAA Credit Rating" (http://www.PublicFinanceLeadersForum.com), September 9, New York City, will provide attendees with the first analysis of the impact of the U.S. credit rating downgrade by S&P, with a panel on "The Government's Perspective, Striking a Balance Between Short and Long-Term Needs". Recognized investors, government officials and executives from the rating agencies will debate the short and medium-term outlook for public issues in the U.S. Governments have favored private investments as these can help build more long-term assets, boost efficiency and avoid raising taxes. However, deals are threatening credit ratings in some cases, effect now compounded with the federal government's debt downgrade, and affecting the quality and cost of basic utilities such as electricity and water. ·         Are these moves akin to individuals using their retirement plans to pay for immediate needs, instead of planning for the future? ·         What are the risks associated with revenue losses over time? How can governments ensure that communities are not hurt over the long run? ·         How to encourage investors to focus on projects that address governments' most pressing needs? Is the private sector bringing in additional costs for the community? ·         Could selling assets hurt governments financially over the long term? Public Finance Leaders Forum 2011, sponsored by Modern Finance Report (http://modernfinancereport.com), is produced by Golden Networking (http://www.goldennetworking.net), the premier networking community for business executives, entrepreneurs and investors.
