The Texas economy has begun to feel the effects of falling oil prices. Employment growth is also slowing with key sectors in professional services and oil/gas hit the hardest. Coupled with a strong dollar and weaker growth in Europe and Asia, Texas could slow to the point where we don’t outpace the nation this year. What will that mean as we look forward to 2016?

For the fourth consecutive year, Texas CEO Magazine, the UT McCombs School of Business and the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas collaborate to present an Economic Forecast for 2016. Leading the discussion will be a Federal Reserve Bank economist and executives from the key industry sectors driving the economy of Texas. Register now!
