"New Perspectives on the U.S. and
Connecticut Economies and Fixing Our Future"
Speakers: Donald Klepper-Smith, Chief Economist and
Director of Research, DataCore Partners LLC and Marcia L.
Marien, CPA, Managing Partner, Marien + Company, LLC
Economist Donald Klepper-Smith will provide an overview
of factors promoting and constraining domestic and
Connecticut economic expansion, with the emphasis on
real-time data and risk factors. Specific topics of discussion
will include a review of consumer fundamentals, the outlook
for interest rates, regional employment trends, prospects for
inflation, the path of future monetary policy, and projections
for real GDP growth.
CSCPA President Marcia Marien, herself a municipal audi-
tor, will explain just how bad it really is. Connecticut is
. Not going broke, but broke. Our financial statements
show that our liabilities (reported and unreported) are four
times our assets right now! Plus, we face almost a $10 bil-
lion budget deficit over the next three fiscal years. There are
action steps we must take today to fix our future. Marien will
describe how we must convert to full-accrual Generally
Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), create a long-term
strategic plan for the state of Connecticut, and proactively
designate any unanticipated surplus revenue to further
reduce budget deficits and unfunded post-retirement
