NORTHBROOK – BMO Private Bank US Chief Investment Officer Jack Ablin will be the keynote speaker at the Northbrook Chamber of Commerce’s annual Economic Outlook breakfast, held in partnership with the Deerfield Bannockburn Riverwoods (DBR) and Glenview Chambers.
Ablin will comment on the recent Trump Administration promises to change the way Washington works, from tax cuts, to regulatory rollbacks to fiscal spending. Ablin estimates that all told, the cost of the Commander in Chief’s programs will cost more than $10 trillion over the next ten years. “While the prospective legislation is clearly stimulative, we will examine what’s likely to pass and what impact it will have on the economy and stock markets, both domestically and in the world at large,” he comments.
Ablin will also share his insight on basic economic indicators, including the expected rise in interest rates, inflation, the housing market and the outlook for employment. He will discuss whether bubbles are forming domestically in specific markets, including real estate.

He is also a frequent contributor to the national news outlets on economic policy, including CNBC, Bloomberg, The Wall Street Journal and Barron’s. He spent five years as a Money and Markets correspondent for the NBC affiliate in Jacksonville, Florida. He also served as a Professor of Finance at Boston University, Graduate School of Management.
