The Economic Outlook for 2009-2010: How bad will it get?

The University of Arizona’s Eller College of Management presents the annual Economic Outlook forecast luncheon – December 12 at the Westin La Paloma.

TUCSON, Ariz. – November 26, 2008 – As 2008 comes to a close, the national and local economies are in free-fall. What was supposed to be a short and mild recession is now looking more like the severe recessions of the mid 1970s and early 1980s. Will the unprecedented measures taken by the federal government to prop up the financial system be sufficient to rescue the economy quickly, or are we facing a 1990s-style Japanese “lost decade?” How much further will housing prices fall? What measures can budget-challenged state and local governments take to get this economy rolling again? Is inflation or deflation the bigger threat?

Join Paul R. Portney, Gerald J. Swanson, and Marshall J. Vest as they cut to the bottom line at this annual, must-attend event.

The cost for the luncheon is $75 per person/$750 per table thereafter. Register online at or call 520.626.7842.
