The Milken Global Conference (from 29 April – 2 May 2018 in Los Angeles, US) brought together the strongest minds in business, government, technology, philanthropy, academia and media, to look for actionable, collaborative solutions to some of the most important questions of our time.
Mark Weinberger sat down with Yahoo! to discuss trade, geopolitical uncertainty, tax policy and the shifting workforce.
“Business leaders clearly want to be in a world where we have fair trade agreements, so we understand what the administration is trying to do, and the rest of the world is trying to do,” says Weinberger. “The question is how do we do it with a minimal amount of disruption?”
“The confidence of CEOs today is as high as I’ve seen it in decades, certainly since 2008. […] Consumer confidence remains high, business confidence is extremely high.”
“Tax reform is going to take a while to play through the system. […] It takes a while for companies to transform their supply chains, to enter into big transactions, even to make capital expenditures, so that’s going to play out over the next 12-18 months.”
