WPCCA Economic Outlook Webinar: The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly

Has the Federal Reserve successfully engineered a soft landing?  Or, is the confluence of geopolitical conflict, a presidential election, rising consumer debt levels, and still high interest rates conspiring to produce economic downturn in 2024?  It is difficult to know whether 2024 will be a good year – but one thing is clear – it will be a very interesting one.  This presentation will supply in-depth analysis of major factors shaping economic outcomes, including interest rates, global conflict, wage dynamics, business confidence, and demographics.  It will then turn toward a forecast for the coming year, highlighting the major risks that economic stakeholders will likely encounter.

 

Date: Friday, March 1, 2024
Time: 11:00am – 12:00pm PST
