This year's event -- being held from October 27-30 at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside -- is no exception, as the 2010 New Orleans Investment Conference features a blockbuster agenda with some of the biggest names in economics, geopolitics and investing.   This year's Conference will include a special "Summit on America's Future" -- an elite panel featuring Newt Gingrich, Charles Krauthammer, Dick Armey and Robert Ringer.   In addition to the dramatic transformations in health care, the investment markets and energy policy now being imposed by Washington, American investors must also grapple with a spiraling national debt, a moribund economy and looming tax hikes. Participants in the "Summit on America's Future" will give attendees the inside scoop on these momentous changes, and reveal what investors must do to prepare for them.  This year's New Orleans Investment Conference will also treat attendees to timely strategies and specific tips from dozens of additional experts in geopolitics, economics and investments, including:  Dr. Marc Faber -- An icon in the world of investments, Dr. Faber's typically controversial and contrarian views have earned him the label of "Dr. Doom." But even his harshest critics admit that he's been unerringly correct in his market forecasts over the past three decades.  Dennis Gartman -- Mr. Gartman is a frequent guest on leading investment television programs and his daily publication, The Gartman Letter, is read by many of the world's leading banks, brokerage firms, hedge funds, mutual funds and commodity trading companies. At the New Orleans Conference, he'll share his most powerful tips and forecasts with attendees.  P eter Schiff -- After dead-on accurate predictions on the U.S. stock market, economy, real estate, the mortgage meltdown, credit crunch, subprime debacle, commodities, gold and the dollar, all of the nation's major financial media are flocking to hear Mr. Schiff's latest views.  Robert Ringer -- A three-time No. 1 best-selling author and one of the most eloquent proponents of individual liberty and responsibility in recent history, Mr. Ringer will reveal what's really going on in Washington, and where you can expect the next attacks on your freedom to come from.  David Walker -- America's former U.S. Comptroller General knows better than anyone how our exploding debt will affect investors, and what they need to do to protect themselves from the consequences.  Eric Sprott -- Over four decades in the investment markets, Eric Sprott has racked up some impressive credentials -- and an equally impressive track record. He is arguably the most successful gold investor on earth, and investors who want to know what he's buying in the market will find out at New Orleans 2010.  Dr. Stephen Leeb -- The senior editor of The Complete Investor and one of the most successful and highly respected investment newsletter editors in history, Dr. Leeb will provide attendees with his forecasts for the tumultuous days ahead, but also the specific stocks and strategies needed.
