University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Harris Alumni Center, Charlotte, N.C.
North Carolina, like many states are facing challenging economic times from job losses in the manufacturing industry. The meltdown of the subprime mortgage market and the ever-increasing credit crunch has added new dimensions to the region’s challenges. Communities must now contend with increasing unemployment, new consumer regulation, and emerging consumer issues such as fraud.
In the midst of a challenging economy many experts have commented on what has caused the economy to grow weak. Now consumers are shifting their focus from the cause of foreclosure and the recession to the indicators of a recovering economy. This forum will focus on moving forward in the new economy.
Professors from UNC-Charlotte will discuss the local economy and share information from their annual regional forecast. Economist from the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond will focus on the national and regional economy, while examiners share insights about current and future consumer regulations.
