UCLA Anderson Forecast April Economic Outlook: Ideas + Innovation and the Los Angeles Economy


The theme of the conference is the presidential election. The objective is to provide for the audience the view of the economics profession with regard to specific economic policy proposals by the candidates. This will not be advocacy, but rather that the moderator and discussants in the three conversations will relate research on the topics raised by the moderator as it informs the potential impacts of the policy proposals. It is possible that a proposal is sufficiently different from that which has been studied, that the discussion will center around what economic theory might suggest, but will also make clear that there is no empirical evidence as yet.
