The Economic Club of New York
Founded in 1907, the Economic Club of New York is the premier forum for discussion on a wide range of issues facing New York City, the United States, and the world. We welcome preeminent thought leaders from across the globe and from the public and private sectors to speak on complex issues ranging from public policy and economic regulation to tech disruption. Nonpolitical, nonpartisan, and nonprofit, the Club promotes no agenda and takes no sides on issues, encouraging speakers and members to engage openly in thoughtful discussions.
The Club comprises individual memberships, drawing from senior leadership of the many corporate and financial organizations based in the Metropolitan area. We have had the honor of hosting speakers who are experts in their respective fields and are driving the conversations that shape the future world. Past speakers include leaders of Fortune Global 500 companies, multiple U.S. presidents, and many other innovators, luminaries, and statesmen.
