New York CNN Business  —

Among the topics likely to come up is the renewed trade war between the United States and China. On Friday, President Donald Trump threatened to hike tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods, just as the two nations were expected to finish negotiations on a new trade deal.

That threw markets for a loop. The Dow fell 473 points Tuesday.

Trump’s call for a rate cut and his criticism of Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell are also likely subjects of discussion. Although the economy is booming and unemployment is near a 50-year low, Trump and his administration have continued to call for emergency rate cuts to juice the economy even further.

That way-outside-the-mainstream opinion was shared by Stephen Moore, one of Trump’s picks to join the Fed board of governors. Moore, who pulled his name from consideration because of his controversial comments about women, will speak at the SALT conference Wednesday.

Dozens of business leaders will be at SALT discussing markets, strategy and policy. Prominent speakers include Moore, Nouriel Roubini, Chamath Palihapitiya, Angelo Mozilo, Mark Cuban, and Sean Rad.

Several politicians from both sides of the aisle will speak at SALT as well, including Jeff Sessions, Chris Christie, David Petraeus, Susan Rice, John Kelly and Nikki Haley.

Steve Case, co-founder of AOL and CEO of tech company Revolution, will also appear at SALT — and on Markets Now Wednesday.

Quest will ask Case about Revolution, venture capital, tech regulation and the IPO market.
