At the end of the US economic recovery from the Great
Recession continued in 2014, but how long will it last? The Janet

growth and what states? Will the US Federal Reserve raise rates
and by how much? Most importantly, how will this impact your

the move and what can we expect for 2015? Will the European
Central Bank pursue an aggressive quantitative easing program like the
Fed and will it translate into EUR weakness? Can the Bank of
Japan avert a relapse into deflation and while restarting its economic
engine? Will the Federal Reserve stay on hold longer than
expected and hurt the US dollar rally? Most importantly, how will
this impact your business? All these questions will be addressed
by Andy Busch host of Voice America's "Engage with Andy Busch" and
editor of the Busch Update.

2016 according to the IEA. The big question: is this
sustainable? Will the drop in crude prices shut down new US
producers? Will the new Congress lift the ban on oil
exports? Most importantly, how will this impact your
business? As host of Voice America's Engage and editor of the
public policy and market newsletter "The Busch Update," Andy Busch

deliver a comprehensive, forward-looking analysis of America's energy
and economic outlook. Andy provides inside knowledge of how the
