16th Annual Executive Roundtable to Focus on Trump Presidency and the Economy

As President Trump and the Republican-led Congress navigate the first 100 days of the Trump presidency, there are many questions about how the promises made on the campaign trail are being incorporated into government policy. What changes in economic policy can we expect to see during a Trump presidency, and how will those policies affect Americans?
The 16th Annual Executive Roundtable at Allegheny College, hosted by the college’s Center for Business and Economics and Law & Policy Program, will bring together experts to speak on “The Trump Presidency: Economic Policy Opportunities and Challenges,” from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on Monday, April 3. The roundtable in the college’s Ford Memorial Chapel is free and open to the public.
Panelists will include Karen Ubelhart ’77, senior industrials analyst for Bloomberg and a member of Allegheny’s Board of Trustees; Martin Pfinsgraff ’77, retired senior deputy comptroller for Large Bank Supervision, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, U.S. Department of the Treasury, and a member of Allegheny’s Board of Trustees; Norman Robertson, economic advisor for Smithfield Trust Company and former chief economist for Mellon Bank; and Jason MacDonald, associate professor of political science, West Virginia University.Moderating the roundtable will be Tomas Nonnenmacher, professor of economics at Allegheny.
The roundtable’s expert panelists from the world of economics and politics will discuss the implications of President Trump’s initial policy initiatives and the economic opportunities and challenges that will confront him during his presidency.
“We expect that the Executive Roundtable will serve as a forum in which we can discuss the economic policies, challenges and opportunities facing the new administration with the objectivity and civility that have long defined Allegheny College,” said Russ Ormiston, assistant professor and co-director of the Center for Business and Economics.
The Executive Roundtable is supported by the Earl W. Adams Jr. Endowment, established by Allegheny College trustee William H.
