September 2019 Economic Outlook

SEPTEMBER 25 | 7:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Technology is transforming the US economy and Los Angeles, particularly Silicon Beach, is certainly experiencing the impact. As we enter the third decade of the 21st Century, what does the recent success of Silicon Beach in West LA tell us about the future landscape and opportunities in the rest of the City? Is workforce development an impediment to further growth? What kinds of actions will industry, entrepreneurs, academia and the City need to take to ensure future success? The September UCLA Anderson Forecast conference will discuss these issues as well as the economic outlook and prospect for a near term recession.
