    Please join us for a discussion of macroeconomic activity and it's affect regionally and nationally.

    Job growth remains strong, wages are showing signs of improvement yet quarterly GDP growth remains weak and erratic. We will discuss these seemly inconsistent economic forces, the underlying causes, and what it tells us about future economic growth.
