In Session 1 of the 2013 Morningstar Individual Investor Conference, Northern Trust's Katie Nixon, Charlie Bobrinskoy of Ariel, and Morningstar's Bob Johnson tackle today's macro questions on government policy, economic growth, inflation , and more.
Morningstar director of economic analysis Bob Johnson addresses recent sluggishness in the economy and makes the case for better growth in the second half of the year.
