Lawconomy: A Global Analysis of Key Laws Affecting the US Economy
About this Program
The current state of the economy was arguably the most important issue of the 2012 Election and continued to be as President Obama began his second term in January 2013. In this program, some of the country’s sharpest legal and business minds collaborated together to provide an in-depth look at the economic impact on real estate, small businesses and everyone.
The presenters included Economist Roger Arnold who discussed the origins of the recent housing crisis and ways we could have prevented it, how the U.S. economy fared as compared to international economies, and sequestration - one of the hottest political issues in D.C. focusing on the upcoming mandatory cuts to federal programs.
Following him was CPA and Attorney Dr. Bart Basi who provided helpful insights into the significant sections of the U.S. Tax Law and the potential long term effect on businesses and individuals.
Finally, the program concluded with Emmy-Winning host of Win Ben Stein’s Money, Ben Stein. Ben Stein left viewers learning, laughing and, at times, crying, in his thought-provoking presentation on the history leading up to the current status of our national economic climate.
Do not miss this highly informative discussion that will keep attorneys and accountants inspired, educated and entertained while answering key questions on the economy and its affects on business owners and legal practitioners nationwide.

very thought-provoking subject matter, great speakers
3 hours went by without my noticing. Amazing indeed.
Really superb, interesting presentation.
Dr. Basi and Ben Stein were fantastic and entertaining speakers!
It without a doubt is one of the most informative CLE courses I have ever taken, as well as one of the most informative lectures.
This was, by far, the best program that I viewed at Lawline.com or anywhere else for that matter. Thank you.
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the speakers.
An extremely thought provoking course. I was captivated by the presentations.
Excellent speakers, interesting topic, covered all aspects well.
This was a very good presentation.
informative and interesting
very interesting. and it was nice that each speaker came in with a different part of the puzzle
Sobering and insightful. Lawyers (and people in general) have ra responsibility and a lot of work to do to fix the system
Surprisingly partisan, but I found that invigorating and interesting. A welcome departure from the typical CLE, while still being highly informative and educational. Well done.
What a great group of speakers! I could have listened to three hours from each of them on this topic, and I have the sense that they could have done three hours each easily, with lots of additional substance.
I could only wish all three speakers had had more time. I could listen to them for hours.
I am SO GLAD I chose to listen to this program. Thank you for presenting it!
Each of the three speakers was extremely interesting. This was one of your best courses.
Ben Stein's lecture was a great summation of historic real-life influences and helped explain today's economic issues.

This was the best so far. The speakers were expert and entertaining at the same time, broad coverage w/ specific examples, and fearless.
