 AMERICAN STOCK EXCHANGE WASHINGTON CONFERENCE TO FOCUS ON 1992
 ELECTIONS AND THEIR IMPACT ON FINANCIAL MARKETS AND U.S. BUSINESS
 WASHINGTON, Oct. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- An array of nationally-known public figures will comment on the 1992 Presidential and Congressional elections and their impact on worldwide financial markets and U.S. business at a conference co-sponsored by the American Stock Exchange and three major securities firms here on November 3-4.
 The two-day meeting, titled "U.S. Perspectives: Election '92," is expected to draw more than 300 international investment professionals from Asia, Europe, the Middle East and North America as well as chief executives from a number of Amex-listed companies. Leaders from government, academia and the private sector will focus on the key issues and personalities driving the 1992 elections as well as on the economic and political realities that will shape the American agenda into the 21st century.
 The conference will be held at the Mayflower Hotel, 1127 Connecticut Avenue, N.W. Co-sponsors of "U.S. Perspectives" with the Amex are Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette Securities Corporation; Merrill Lynch and Co., Inc.; and Smith Barney Inc.
 "The election of a president and new members of Congress this year will be a watershed in U.S. politics. Whoever is elected president will be watched closely by investment managers throughout the world as he pilots this country into an era of post Cold-War cooperation and competition," said Amex Chairman James R. Jones.
 "In addition," said Jones, "money managers from abroad who control billions of investment dollars will be analyzing the outcome of Congressional contests for clues to the potential U.S. climate toward tax policy, trade, securities regulation and investment in the United States." The entire House and one-third of the Senate are up for election, and a number of experienced Congressmen are not seeking reelection.
 Speakers will include Michael J. Boskin, Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers; Dick Cheney, Secretary of Defense; Martin J. Feldstein, President of the National Bureau of Economic Research; Richard C. Breeden, Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission; Jack Kemp, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development; Gen. Colin L. Powell, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff; L. William Seidman, former Chairman of the Resolution Trust Corporation and of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation; William E. Colby, former director of the Central Intelligence Agency; Barber B. Conable, Jr., former president of the World Bank Group.
 David R. Gergen, editor-at-large of U.S. News & World Report and a commentator for "The MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour," will act as conference moderator.
