Now more than ever, it is important to stay informed about changing economic conditions. A collection of local experts will share their observations and expectations for 2011 at the 27th Annual San Diego County Economic Roundtable at the University of San Diego on Friday, Jan. 28. The lively forum will examine local and national economic forecasts, the local real-estate market, growth projections in the local high tech sector, unemployment, and demographic and growth projections for the region.
“Understanding where the economy is headed is important to everyone,” said Bill Horn, Chairman of the County Board of Supervisors. “The individuals the County has brought together for this forum are experts in their respective fields and can help residents, businesses and nonprofit organizations recognize the opportunities that exist in San Diego County.”
More than 300 attendees are expected at the Roundtable, the region’s longest-running free economic forecasting event. Chairman Horn will deliver opening remarks and the discussion will be moderated by Ryan Ratcliff, Assistant Professor of Economics with USD’s School of Business Administration. Panelists include:
- Marney Cox, Chief Economist, San Diego Association of Governments
- Dr. Alan Gin, Associate Professor of Economics, USD
- Dr. Lynn Reaser, Chief Economist, Point Loma Nazarene University
