Breakfast with the Economists: A Mid-Year Economic Update

June 6, 2007

The home-building industry is in recession, consumer spending is slowing, and the nation’s economy is growing well below potential. Yet, Arizona continues to garner recognition for nation-leading growth. Is the local economy insulated from national trends? What does the rest of 2007 hold?

Join Eller College of Management economists Marshall J. Vest and Gerald J. Swanson for breakfast as they answer these questions and offer insight into Arizona’s economy for the remainder of 2007.

The cost for the breakfast is $20 per person.
