Guest Speaker - Kenneth D. Simonson
Ken is the Chief Economist with Associated General Contractors of America (the leading trade association for the construction industry) since 2001. Fellow and past President, National Association for Business Economics. BA-economics, University of Chicago; MA-economics, Northwestern University.
Construction companies were busy in 2019 and say they are optimistic for 2020, both nationally and in California. But high costs, congestion and multiple natural disasters are increasingly driving residents and businesses out of state. Meanwhile, the U.S. economy appears to be slowing.
Will contractors stay busy or is the dreaded downturn about to hit? AGC of America’s chief economist will report on the association’s latest outlook survey and offer his own guesses.
