UCLA Anderson Forecast in Partnership with The Easton Center for Technology management present

SEPTEMBER 2019 Economic Outlook

Technology is transforming the US economy and nowhere more than in Los Angeles. 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? The September UCLA Anderson Forecast conference will discuss these issues as well as the economic outlook and prospect for a near term recession.
