12th Annual Inland Empire Economic Forecast Conference


THE GREAT RECOVERY: COULD IT BE DERAILED?
Growth, Change, and Renewal in a Post-Pandemic Economy 
Ray UCR branding

 

As the trauma of the COVID-19 recession fades in our collective rear view mirror, the economic outlook is a mix of robust business growth and new challenges – some of which are still unfolding in unexpected ways. 
 

  • On the backend of one of the most unusual business cycles in U.S. history, what’s changed and what hasn’t? 
     
  • Many parts of the economy have already returned to their pre-pandemic levels, even surpassing them. Will the next year bring a slower climb for the U.S., California, and the Inland Empire? 
     
  • Why are labor shortages so widespread? What does it mean for workers? For employers? And how long will it last?
     
  • How should state and federal resources be allocated to support sectors that continue to struggle? What’s behind the uneven recovery? 
     
  • Is persistent inflation in our future? What’s the Fed’s best next move? 
     
  • The Inland Empire is a major league region with minor league downtowns. Can local jurisdictions jumpstart a downtown renaissance? 

 

Join some of the nation’s leading economists as they help decipher the gains and pitfalls of the coming year.
