Webinar: The Current State of the Economy

Hosted by: Accounting & Finance Council

Date: Thursday, April 18, 2019
Time: 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. CST


Turn on the television, and you’ll likely see a discussion of what’s happening now— such as the latest GDP numbers or corporate earnings announcements. However, these cyclical developments are often deeply affected by underlying secular influences that are slow-moving yet incredibly powerful.

This webinar will give an update on what cyclical and secular drivers are present in the economy today both nationally and regionally, and the role the Fed plays in the economy.
