Elected into Congress at the age of 26, Harold Ford Jr. served on the House Budget, Education, and Financial Services committees. Recognized early on for his ability to seek and find bipartisan solutions, Ford quickly became a leader among the congressional blue dog caucus where he worked across party lines to pass balanced budgets, find cures to our nation’s broken public education system, and lower taxes on job creators and middle-class families for five terms. Ford is able to describe and examine the implications of changing trade, tax, financial regulation, climate change, health care, and infrastructure investment policy and how these changes will affect growth in a crosssection of industry spaces. Ford relies on his experiences on the financial services and budget committees in Congress from 97-07 to forecast and analyze the dynamic differences the anticipated federal policy changes will deliver to the U.S. economy. To the surprise of some, because Ford is a democrat, ford believes there’s some upside to many of these changes, and he accepts that there are real risks to some of the propelled changes. Ford believes the Democratic Party is now forced to go through a reinvention to regain its national footing and relevance.
