Media Opportunity: Breakfast with the Economist

College of Management presents annual mid-year assessment of the economy on June 9 at the Doubletree Hotel Tucson at Reid Park.

TUCSON, Ariz. – June 2, 2010 – The recession is over — let recovery begin!

The national economy bottomed out nearly a year ago. Rescue and stimulus measures put into play by federal policymakers worked and a repeat of the Great Depression was averted. Recession locally lasted longer and damage to the economy was more severe, but mercifully it's finally over.

What sectors will lead the way during recover and what sectors will lag behind? When will companies start hiring again? Will inflation accelerate any time soon? What about all the excess liquidity that's now in the system?

Join the Eller College 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 2010.

The annual Breakfast with the Economists forecasting event is sponsored by Chase.
