February 26, 2015
Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs
First, joining host Bret Boyles on this week’s Capital Thinking will be Dan Waltz, who will discuss the impact that a new and relaxed policy towards Cuba will have on the US banking industry. Next, Deborah Lodge will join Bret to discuss updates in generic top-level domain (gTLD) names, including continued launch of new and interesting names such as <.FASHION.> and <.BANK>. Then, switching gear and focusing on US policy, Bret will chat with David Schnittger on the various challenges that accost the Republic Party as they maneuver between issues of a potential Department of Homeland Security shutdown and derailing President Obama’s immigration action. Back by popular demand, we will replay our interview last week with Frank Samolis discussing various trade issues, including his thoughts on why Congress should pass TPA.
