Materials for the symposium, during which participants discuss economic issues, implications and policy options, will be posted as they are available. All times listed below are in the Mountain Time Zone.

This year's theme will explore several significant, and potentially long-lasting developments affecting the global economy. While the immediate disruption of the pandemic is fading, there likely will be long-lasting aftereffects for how economies are structured, both domestically and globally, as trade networks shift, and global financial flows react.
