Media Opportunity: Economic Update 2011-2012

UA Eller College of Management presents its annual economic forecast luncheon on December 10 at the Westin La Paloma Resort.

TUCSON, Ariz. – November 29, 2010 – The economy lost momentum in recent months and has grown little since the recession ended over a year ago. The de-leveraging process is not yet complete. Business leaders are wary given new legislation and rules that affect regulation of financial markets and health care costs. And consumers are constrained by a still-weak labor market, tight credit, and high foreclosure rates.

The recession may be over, but it certainly doesn't feel like it, so it is not a surprise that both consumers and business leaders remain cautious. What can we expect going forward? When will credit start expanding again? When will housing markets stabilize? What's the outlook for labor markets? With annual federal deficits of $1 trillion-plus and short-term interest rates near zero, what are the policy options? Will Congress extend the Bush tax cuts? Will quantitative easing work, or is the Fed simply monetizing the debt?

Join the UA Eller College for breakfast with economists Gerald J. Swanson and Marshall J. Vest as they answer these questions and offer insights on what to expect in Arizona's economy for 2011-2012.
