The Economy in 2014 - The Year of the Rebound

McCombs Economic Forecast

The Economy in 2014 - The Year of the Rebound?

Will the federal debt load continue to drop? Will the GDP move beyond the two percent range into real recovery? Will unemployment drop below seven percent? Can the Fed hold down inflation so businesses can access low cost capital for growth? And what about the costs of employee health care benefits as the Affordable Care Act rolls out?

Join us for the 2014 economic forecast in Austin, Dallas, or Houston as experts from the most active industries in Texas share their insights from a c-suite point of view.

Events hosted by the McCombs Alumni Network, Texas Enterprise, and Texas CEO magazine.
