The COVID-19 pandemic has rocked a nearly invincible economy—one associated with substantial job growth, multi-decade lows in unemployment, sturdy compensation increases, robust retail sales, low inflation and strong financial market performance—and it continues to wreak havoc on business as usual.
CE invites you to join Anirban Basu, chief economist for both ABC and CFMA, as he speaks to our current economic circumstances, how difficult things are likely to become over the foreseeable future and the contours of the brisk recovery to come thereafter.
During this webinar, Basu will discuss the impact of COVID-19 on the construction industry and the economy in general, as well as review regional and national economic indicators, including:
- construction spending
- materials pricing
- workforce participation and unemployment rates
- supply chain and pricing issues
- local U.S. pressure locations
Basu’s presentation will be approximately 60 minutes, followed by 30 minutes for live Q&A. You may submit questions in advance, while registering for this webinar.
