Anirban Basu, chief economist for both Associated Builders and Contractors and Construction Financial Management Association, returns to present Construction Executive‘s 2022 Construction Industry Economic Update and Forecast. With another tumultuous year wrapping up, Basu will take a look back at the stronger-than-expected recovery effort, and shed some light on what the future holds.
This presentation will review the latest in both construction and general economic indicators. Areas of discussion will include: movement on the infrastructure package; the latest on jobs and unemployment reports; the effect of the end of extended unemployment benefits, materials prices and shipping costs (no word yet on if his favorite Baltic Dry Index will return); as well as a review of the latest ABC construction confidence index and construction backlog indicator reports. Wherever the industry goes, be sure Basu will cover it!
