Dr. Kenneth Kriz Presents Economic Outlook at Quad Cities Chamber of Commerce Annual Conference
Dr. Kriz presented an economic outlook for the nation, for the 3-state Iowa-Illinois-Missouri region, and the local Quad Cities economy. His presentation highlighted that while the national and regional economy has slowed, there was not a high likelihood of the economy tipping into recession in the near future. For the Quad Cities region, Dr. Kriz stressed that it needs to diversify away from industries that it has historically relied heavily upon to seek growth in industries that have better job and output growth prospects over the next 10 years.
Dr. Kriz’ full presentation is available on the Academic Papers and Presentations page.
