Meda Opportunity: Economic Update 2012-2013

UA Eller College of Management presents annual economic forecast luncheon on December 9 at the Westin La Paloma Resort.

TUCSON, Ariz. – November 28, 2011 – The nation’s economy has barely grown during 2011. In its current state, the economy is vulnerable to shocks or policy mistakes. Looming threats include the European debt crisis, premature tightening of U.S. fiscal policy, and continuing malaise in housing markets.

Uncertainty is very high – and confidence of both business leaders and consumers are back near recession levels. Employment is stuck in low gear and unemployment remains painfully high. Demand is weak in nearly every sector, and disenchantment with the political process is one more reason not to spend or hire.

Where do we go from here? Is there anything left in the fiscal or monetary policy toolbox that will help? Is Great Depression II at hand?

Join the UA Eller College for breakfast with economists Gerald J. Swanson and Marshall J. Vest and Anthony Chan of JPMorgan Chase as they answer these questions and offer insights on what to expect in Arizona and the nation’s economy for 2012-2013.

The annual Economic Outlook luncheon is sponsored by JPMorgan Chase.
