Want to learn more about what to expect from the economy in 2020? Changes are forthcoming.

This webinar will discuss the current state of the national and Colorado economies as well as our forecast for 2020. The national forecast will focus on GDP growth with anticipated contributions from the consumer and business sector. Employment growth and unemployment rates will also be Richard Wobbekindhighlighted. The national section will conclude with discussion of fiscal and monetary policy and anticipated interest rate movements.

A forecast for Colorado will follow. Now in its 55th year, the Business Research Division of the Leeds School of Business works with more than 100 business insiders/leaders representing every industry in the state to present an annual consensus forecast. The forecast analyzes changes that have occurred during the past year and estimates industry employment and output for the coming year. We expect Colorado to continue to outperform the nation in terms of economic performance, but at a slower pace.
