Dr. Donald Sabbarese, Emeritus Professor of Economics, Kennesaw State University

Join us for an evening of insight into the U.S. economy with Kennesaw State Emeritus Professor of Economics Don Sabbarese.

2019 U.S. Economic Growth slipped from 2.9% in 2018 to approximate 2.3%. That’s a far cry from a prediction of 2019 recession by some economists and other media experts back in July. This marks 127 months of expansion compared to post-WWII average expansions of 58 months. Overall this level of economic growth along with strong job, income and wealth growth is impressive at this point in the expansion. Yet issues of income, wealth and other conditions of inequality still surround this economy’s performance. This presentation will identify and discuss the economic forces behind this record expansion and any dark clouds that might be forming to end it or weaken it.

Join us for a better understanding of the economic cross-currents that will ultimately determine growth and address the issues above.
