Economic Update on the Steel Industry
Christopher Thornberg, Founding Partner, Beacon Economics

At a pivotal moment in U.S. and California economic history, Beacon Economics' founding partner Dr. Christopher Thornberg will present a comprehensive forecast for the post-pandemic economy and the steel industry. With output in the nation already higher than it was prior to the COVID crisis, and with some sectors booming, the pandemic recession has been one of deepest but shortest on record. Still, both challenges and opportunities lie ahead. The labor market remains well behind and the massive federal stimulus doesn’t come free – possibly introducing dangerous instabilities including inflation, asset bubbles and serious fiscal budget challenges into the future. How fast will we return to a stable, long-run trend? 

Dr. Thornberg will provide a global view of the steel industry, dive deeper into the national marketplace and conclude with an emphasis on the region, including the Northern Pacific. He will present a thorough look at the near-term direction of key economic indicators such as commercial and residential real estate markets, employment/unemployment, consumer spending, bankruptcies, business activity, personal income, international trade and GDP growth.

Please join us for what is sure to be a captivating presentation followed by a facilitated question-and-answer period immediately following.
