The New York Times announces its inaugural DealBook conference, “Opportunities for Tomorrow,” which will explore the opportunities and challenges posed by the 2012 election results, including the regulatory landscape, the relationship between economic growth and jobs, and what Congress and the President should do for the economy over the next four years.
