and join us for a deep look at what the Inland Empire will look like in 2035.

The Forecast

  • The ongoing economic expansion: Is the U.S. due for another recession?
  • Election 2016: Will the domestic economy be Hillar-iously successful or will it be Trump-ed by developments elsewhere in the world?
  • Does the Fed have any policy ammunition left? And where are interest rates heading?
  • California warning: Budget mess ahead!
  • The Inland Southern California economy is doing fine but which sectors will lead in 2017?
  • What’s holding housing back in the Inland region?

Inland Empire 2035

By the year 2035, Inland Empire will:
  • Be the second largest population center in California 
  • Have more jobs than anywhere in Southern California other than Los Angeles 
  • Will see home prices that are double what they are today
What will the region look like and what does the growth mean for those who live here? Hear both a long range forecast and a vital discussion about how the growing demand for education, health services, and transportation infrastructure will be met.
