Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce Host Annual Business Day

Last week, the Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce hosted the 15th annual Business Day at the Monona Terrace in Madison. Attendees heard from speakers from around the nation on business and political affairs topics.

Featured speakers this year included political commentator Stephen Hayes from The Weekly Standard, who discussed the nation’s political climate and the current state of the presidential election. Demographer Ken Gronbach gave a talk about changing conditions of the workforce and the future of education, communications and marketing. Senator Ron Johnson and Governor Scott Walker each discussed their priorities of growing the economy and improving Wisconsin’s business climate.

The keynote speaker at this year’s event was Larry Kudlow, the former host of CNBC’s The Kudlow Report. Formerly, Kudlow was the associate director for economics and planning at the Office of Management and Budget during President Ronald Reagan’s first term. Kudlow spoke of tax reform and gave insights on the presidential election.
