Dear Fellow Houston/Penn Wharton alumni,
We again are pleased to extend an invitation for you to join us in a discussion with Wharton Professor Mauro Guillen.  The discussion will be next Wednesday, June 3rd, 1pm central.  Professor Guillen will discuss with us issues covering:
  • What the COVID recovery might look like across the world
  • Firm/entity-level consequences, and how customer behavior may impact the go-forward reinterpretation of "business as usual"
  • Macro level indications, backed by up-to-date data, of what may happen with regard to protectionism, economic inequality, and other factors
