Marci Rossell takes complex economic issues, often dull in the button-down business press, and makes them relevant to people’s lives, families and careers. She is excellent speaking on the nexus of economics, politics, culture, and the media. Revealing not only a path towards financial recovery, but how today’s issues relate to past decisions, her economic explanations help organizations map out their own successful futures. She is an enthusiastic advocate for Corporate America – the child of democracy and free markets – which gives jobs to people, puts food on their tables and is the greatest generator of wealth the world has ever devised.
