General Sessions


2017 NIC Talks


Opening General Session

The opening session—“The Impact of the Trump Administration’s Policies on Economic Growth: A Debate”—spotlighted two high-profile influential figures, former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Treasury Secretary Lawrence H. Summers. They offered divergent opinions on the current political environment and its effect on healthcare and taxes. Gingrich is optimistic that tax reform, or more likely a cut, will be enacted. Summers doesn’t foresee major reforms. They agreed partisanship will likely continue, though there are areas where both Republicans and Democrats can legislate together.


Conference Luncheon

Paul Irving, Chairman of the Milken Institute Center for the Future of Aging, delivered the keynote speech on The Upsides of Aging, from finding meaning in your day as you age, to how seniors housing shouldn’t rely on homogenous approaches to serving their varied residents.
