Year End Economic Forecast


Year End Economic Forecast We visit with UNC Charlotte Economics Professor Dr. John Connaughton several times a year when his quarterly forecast of North Carolina's economy comes out. Dr. Connaughton joins us for the last forecast of the year. Recent unemployment figures show progress and a large corporation announced a move to Charlotte but the big banks here continue to struggle. We examine the latest economic news and also look back to see how accurate Dr. Connaughton and others were in predicting the state's economic progress. It's the last economic forecast of the year. Guest John Connaughton - Babson Capital Professor of Financial Economics, UNC Charlotte and the Director of the Babson Capital Economic Forecast Add and read comments
