Registration still available for Economic Forecast Luncheon
National and local speakers unveil what’s in store for the year ahead
The U.S. economic outlook is healthy, according to key economic indicators. Will it remain steady in 2020?
With risks — particularly tariffs on Chinese imports, Fed moves, and potential budget and debt-ceiling standoffs — looming larger, a slowdown looks more likely.
Top experts soon will share their predictions for the state and nation at the Valley’s largest and most trusted economic forecasting event, the Economic Forecast Luncheon. Speakers include Robert J. Barro, the Paul M. Warburg Professor of Economics at Harvard University; and professors of economics at ASU's W. P. Carey School of Business Bart Hobijn and Lee McPheters, who is also the director of the JPMorgan Chase Economic Outlook Center and editor of the Arizona and Western Blue Chip Economic Forecast publications.
