This monthly webcast provides the latest insights from TCB’s Economics Team for the U.S. economy, including the short –term growth forecasts for consumption, investment, labor markets and the aggregate GDP growth.
As a special topic, this month’s Economics Watch focuses on housing. We will review "A Tale of 2000 Cities,” a recently published report by The Demand Institute, a joint endeavor of The Conference Board and Nielsen. This comprehensive research examines how the housing market will develop over the next five years at the national and state levels and within the largest 50 metropolitan areas. The research built detailed economic profiles of the 2,200 largest cities and towns in the United States by analyzing over 500 metrics.
