Making the Most of an Uncertain Situation
featuring Dr. Charlie Hall and Dr. Marco Palma, Texas A&M, College Station, TX
Danny Summers will set the stage for this opening session as Dr. Charlie Hall, the nation's foremost green industry economist, teams up with Dr. Marco Palma to provide insight on the outlook for the spring season.
The current business cycle set a new record for the number of months of economic expansion. But how long can we expect it to last? Does the fact that it is an election year make a difference? Has the Tax Cut & Jobs Act made that much of a difference? What impact has trade had on the economy? And what influence will immigration (or the lack thereof) have on long-term economic growth? Marco and Charlie will discuss these issues and hopefully bring some clarity to these uncertain times. Most importantly, they will discuss what you can actually do about it.
