This Week’s Webinar Series
COVID-19 Economic Update with Anirban Basu
Wednesday, May 13, 2020
Hosted By: Daryl Cronk, Sr. Director of Market Research & Insights, Visit Orlando
Guest Speaker: Anirban Basu, Chairman & CEO, Sage Policy Group
COVID-19 has rocked what had appeared to be a nearly invincible economy; one associated with substantial job growth, multi-decade lows in unemployment, sturdy compensation increases, robust retail sales, low inflation, and strong financial market performance. Underneath that strong performance, however, was a set of fragilities that have been exposed by the pandemic.
This Wednesday’s webinar speaks to our current economic circumstances, how difficult things are likely to become over the foreseeable future, and the contours of the brisk recovery to come thereafter.
