Through the years Jonathan has attended and participated in many industry conferences and seminars. He was profiled in the municipal industry standard publication The Bond Buyer Magazine. In the interview Jonathan was asked his thoughts regarding the municipal bond market, industry trends and the probability of a “flat tax?” In the October 1996 issue Jonathan remarked, “there would be no flat tax any time soon.” And asked how the future looked Jonathan discussed supply and demand observing “the baby boomer generation stands to inherit in excess of $11 trillion driving financial markets for years to come.” More recently he found it interesting that the last boomer born will not even turn 58 until the end of 2020.
