SOU Economics Students Present This Year’s Macro Forecast

 (Ashland, Ore.) What’s next for the US economy?

Find out Thursday, March 15, at 7:00 p.m., as advanced economics students present the results of their forecasting project in Stevenson Union Room 319 at Southern Oregon University (SOU).

The students will describe the current status of the economy and explain their analysis of the future outlook. Although the students use sophisticated models and analytical tools to prepare their forecasts, their presentation is non-technical and designed for a general audience.

“Over the last several years, other groups of SOU economics students have also presented forecasts, and their track record has proven comparable to that of professional forecasters,” says Rubenson. “Although ‘past performance is no guarantee of future results,’ I have every reason to expect that this year’s presentation will continue that strong tradition.”

Previous forecasts are available here.
