Responding to Shock

March 15, 8:00 am - 8:45 am

Frame Your Future Event Series – Responding to Shock




Professionals involved in long-term financial planning must now take into account that in this time of growing unpredictability, we are coming to expect the unexpected—whether it be natural disasters, sudden political upheaval, disruption due to new technology, or new government regulations. At the same time, AI, analytics, and behavioral economics are making predictive modeling more sophisticated, accurate, and enlightening than ever before. With a rapidly expanding technological toolkit, we are better able to analyze data, understand biases, and game out possible futures, in order to assess cost, benefit, and risk. In this conversation, SPS faculty and alumni glimpse the future of saving, investing, and planning for individuals and employers seeking to balance the upsides and downsides of a volatile, dynamic, and unpredictable economy.

Frame Your Future Event Series

This March, Columbia University School of Professional Studies hosts a series of multi-disciplinary conversations where faculty, practitioners, and alumni in their respective fields of study and professional practice probe some pivotal questions shaping business and commerce, science and technology, governance, culture, and society today. Current faculty, alumni, and guest speakers share current experiences from the field and insights from deep academic inquiry, offering audience members a window on theory and practice in key professional and employment arenas.
