POLITICO's Caucus convened on July 20 at the 2016 Republican National Convention for a deep-dive discussion, featuring a variety of perspectives, about the economic policy issues facing the next president. (See also our panel from the Democratic National Convention.)

The event featured a two-part clarifying deep-dive on the candidates' economic policies. First, campaign advisors and economic experts discussed what each candidate will do about trade, manufacturing jobs, long-term debt, taxes, spending, deficits, and financial regulation. Who will be on the economic team? And how will the candidate differ from the last president of his or her party? Then, lawmakers and experts from swing states explained which economic issues are shaping the race in key campaign battlegrounds.

Speakers included:

  • Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX), House Ways and Means Committee
  • Richard Corcoran, Speaker-Designate, Florida House of Representatives
  • Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC)
  • Douglas Holtz-Eakin, President, American Action Forum
  • Larry Kudlow, Senior Contributor, CNBC
  • Steve Moore, Economist, Freedom Works, Foxs News Contributor
  • Lindsey Piegza, Chief Economist, Stifel Nicolaus & Co.
  • Mark Zandi, Chief Economist, Moody’s Analytics
