Media Opportunity: Economic Outlook
2013 - 2014

UA Eller College of Management presents annual economic forecast luncheon on December 7 at the Westin La Paloma Resort.

TUCSON, Ariz. – November 26, 2012 – The nation’s economy suffered a slowdown during the summer and suffers from weak momentum as yearend approaches.

Uncertainty from the elections, Congress’ ability to address the year-end fiscal cliff, increased regulation, and effectiveness of monetary policy continue to restrain both businesses and consumers. Recession in the Eurozone and a pronounced slowdown in China remain the main risks to the U.S. expansion.  On a positive note, housing prices have reversed direction and are increasing at near double-digit annual rates in Arizona markets. But both population growth and job growth are, at best, running at half throttle.

How much longer will the de-leveraging process continue?  When will mobility of the nation’s population return?  What are the effects of the election?

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 2013-2014.

The annual Economic Outlook luncheon is sponsored by JPMorgan Chase.
