Section III: Public Policy04/04/2019 Duration: 42min
The American Dream is alive — but fraying for many.We must have a proper diagnosis of our problems — the issues are real and serious — if we want to have the proper prescription that leads to workable solutions.All these issues are fixable, but that will happen only if we set aside partisan politics and narrow self-interest — our country must come first.Governments must be better and more effective — we cannot succeed without their help. The rest of us could do a better job, too.CEOs: Your country needs you!America’s global role and engagement are indispensable.

We need to continue to restore trust in the strength of the U.S. banking system and global systemically important financial institutions.We have to remind ourselves that responsible banking is good and safe banking.We believe in good regulation — both to help America grow and improve financial stability.We believe stock buybacks are an essential part of proper capital allocation but secondary to long-term investing.On the importance of the cloud and artificial intelligence, we are all in.We remain devoted and diligent to protect privacy and stay cyber safe — we will do what it takes.We know there are risks on the horizon that will eventually demand our attention.We are prepared for — though we are not predicting — a recession.
