What will be the post-pandemic, semi-new normal economy?
Of the many challenges the industry has faced in the past, none has proven as challenging as this modern-day pandemic. The impact of this tragic and far-reaching time in our history has reached and will continue to reach deep into our lives, the economy, and the way companies do business. Which industries have been impacted the most will tell the story of the future of business models. When will we finally be “over” this pandemic, or at least when will it not be a headline, as it will continue to heavily influence future economic conditions. This economic outlook session will focus on future economic productivity, monetary policy, and employment--with a focus on the areas of construction and development.
