Breakfast with the Economists 2024

Pinpoint Shadow  Register Now for the 2024 Breakfast with the Economists

Join  Eller’s George Hammond and Dr. Sharon Megdal, Director of the University of Arizona Water Resources Research Center, as they offer analysis and insights on what to expect for the state economy and Arizona water resources in the future.

The Arizona economy continues to churn out solid gains, even as concerns about water sustainability surge. Both population and jobs rose at a pace faster than the U.S. in 2023. Income also continued to rise, outpacing decelerating inflation. Housing affordability remained low with elevated house prices and increased mortgage interest rates. Housing permit activity declined last year but outperformed expectations.

Where are the global, national, state, and local economies headed next? How will Arizona’s water issues impact economic development and housing? Will restrictive monetary policy succeed in bringing inflation down without causing a recession? Will housing affordability continue to plummet? How much will manufacturing jobs rise? What role do local and state water policies play in all of this?

Be sure to join us for this key event!
