Breakfast with the Economists: A Mid-Year Look at the Economy

The University of Arizona’s Eller College of Management presents the annual Mid-Year Economic Update breakfast – June 18 at the Doubletree Hotel Tucson at Reid Park.

TUCSON, Ariz. – June 8, 2009 – Is there light at the end of the tunnel? Last year’s fourth quarter and this year’s first quarter found the nation’s economy in free fall. Declines in nearly every measure have been simply stunning. The “Great Recession” has developed into the deepest and longest since World War II. Both fiscal and monetary policy makers have introduced unprecedented rescue programs in an effort to replace private sector demand. Are these measures enough? How long will we have to wait to see results? Are we sowing the seeds for the next “bubble?”

Join us for breakfast with economists Gerald J. Swanson and Marshall J. Vest as they answer these questions and offer insights on what to expect in Arizona’s economy for the remainder of 2009. The Mid-Year Economic Update is sponsored by Chase.

The breakfast is $22 per person. Register online at www.eller.arizona.edu/outlook or call 520.626.7842.
