The University of Arizona Eller College of Management announces its 2021 Eller Economic Outlook event presented by JPMorgan Chase. Taking place Friday, December 3 via Zoom from noon to 1:30 p.m., the virtual event features keynote speakers George Hammond, director and research professor of the Eller Economic and Business Research Center, and Anthony Chan, former chief economist with Chase.
“Each year we look forward to bringing together esteemed colleagues, students and the community to present our Economic Outlook event,” says George Hammond director and research professor at the Economic and Business Research Center. “With a strong recovery from the pandemic, there are still many questions that are left unanswered as it relates to our economic status and this event serves to address them.”
This year’s event is set to include insight from the keynote speakers on the future of the local, state, national and global economies based on a strong summer of growth, particularly as it relates to Arizona’s economic recovery from the pandemic. After gaining significant momentum during the summer, with job gains surging, housing permit activity holding strong and taxable sales remaining on track for significant gains, the keynote speakers will offer their insight as to whether this growth is forecasted to decelerate in 2022.
While the state’s economic is rapidly recovering, there are still major issues which Hammond and Chan will address during the event including long-term consequences of the pandemic, whether Arizona will experience a major increase in migrants from other states as remote workers seek lower housing costs, the implications of the recent surge in inflation and how the Federal Reserve will respond, as well as how the stock market will fare in recovery.
