In the first half of the webcast, we will discuss our latest findings, analysis, and predictions on the global economy, followed by latest economic updates and forecast for the US economy. The special topic will focus on demographic shifts that are impacting the US consumer. Spending behavior could vary greatly by age, race and even ethnicity. Not only spending on various goods and services could be different, but also time spent on activities by different types of households. We will preview some of the upcoming findings on how these shifts are likely to influence consumer spending and behaviors over the next decade. CPE credit available.
