San Francisco Economic Outlook for 2018

As we enter the second year of the Trump Administration domestic and international uncertainty abounds. Will stocks continue to rise or is a major correction looming? Will the era of low bond yields continue or will interest rates normalize, sending 10-year U.S. Treasury bonds well above 3%? Regulatory changes are happening faster than the stroke of a pen. What does all this mean for the economy, for bio tech, and for the law in 2018? Join us for a look forward into 2018 at the first annual UC Hastings and UCLA Anderson Forecast Conference for some answers.
