UCLA Anderson Forecast in Collaboration with UCLA Ziman Center for Real Estate Presents
June 2021 Economic Outlook
 

The pandemic induced recession has created new challenges for commercial real estate. What will be the future of offices after more than one year of remote working? Will brick-and-mortar retail be able to compete with surging e-commerce? For the economy, will low borrowing costs, additional fiscal spending, and the release of pent-up demand lead to overheating and inflation? The June UCLA Anderson Forecast conference will discuss the latest forecast and outlook for the changing economy, with a focus on commercial real estate in California and nationwide.

Key Topics
  • Will California's recovery be faster than the nation?
  • Is tech leaving the Golden State?
  • When will California return to the new normal?
  • Is the U.S. Economy at risk of overheating?
  • When will the U.S. economy return to pre-pandemic growth and employment trends?
  • What areas of commercial real estate will thrive in the post-pandemic recovery; what areas will decline?
  • What can we learn about local economic activity and business trends from small businesses with an online presence (online microbusinesses)?
  • Does broadband infrastructure investment help online microbusinesses?
