BACKGROUND: This is the 13th annual Global Economic & Investment Outlook Conference and is a joint effort by the Carnegie Bosch Institute and The Gailliot Center for Public Policy at the Tepper School of Business. According to Michael Trick, president of the Carnegie Bosch Institute and professor of operations research, "In past years, participants have learned about issues such as the Brazilian financial crisis, U.S. accounting problems and Japanese banking difficulties long before they appeared in the general press. This conference always provides accurate warnings and outlooks for the global economy."

The Carnegie Bosch Institute for Applied Studies in International Management represents a unique alliance between the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon and the Robert Bosch Group, one of Germany's leading industrial companies. The institute was established in 1990 as an entity with the Tepper School through an endowment provided by Bosch's U.S. subsidiary. The institute's mission is to initiate and support research in international management, to educate and develop globally minded managers and to foster international cooperation.

The Gailliot Center for Public Policy at Carnegie Mellon focuses on economic issues that affect institutions and government. It serves as advisor to the Joint Economic Committee of the United States Congress on international economic policy.

The annual Global Economic & Investment Outlook Conference is attended by a variety of businesspersons, including chief executives, senior managers, financial and market managers, economists, financial analysts, portfolio managers, investment strategists and others.
