About the Conference

It's been a decade since the U.S. fell into the worst economic downturn of the modern age. The Great Recession was especially ‘great’ in the Inland Empire where the damage inflicted was among the worst in the nation and came at a time of unprecedented expansion locally. Today, propelled by one of the fastest growing populations in the state, the region has largely put this painful episode behind it as unemployment has fallen to record-low levels, incomes are rising, and the housing market is picking up ever greater steam.

Is the Inland Empire economy different today than when the Great Recession hit? Are we better prepared to face the next downturn?

Are the same conditions that led to the recession beginning to form again? What signals should we watch for?

What are the greatest threats to today’s prosperity?

What are the best opportunities and how can you take advantage of them?

 

On this fertile ground are more opportunities than ever to plan, invest, work, and learn. A promising moment is upon us in the Inland Empire.

Join some of the nation’s most renowned economists as they deliver new outlooks for the local, state, and national economy while examining the Great Recession at its ten-year anniversary. We’ll take a look back at lessons learned, and discuss how to capitalize on today's relative prosperity in order to make the Inland Empire’s future the best it can be.
