UCLA Anderson Forecast presents
  Special Topic: Presidential Economics: Does it Matter?
  Korn Convocation Hall, UCLA Anderson School
Thursday, September 20, 2012
7:30am - 11:30am

  (Registration from 7:30am to 8:30am)
  The upcoming election is about the economy. The candidates claim to have very different visions as to the economic policy they would pursue. Voters in California will also vote on infrastructure, regulation, and taxation initiatives. How will each of these affect the future trajectory of the U.S. and California economies? The September UCLA Anderson Forecast Conference will focus on the impact, or lack thereof of the outcomes of the election on employment growth, gap growth and California and local government budgeting.

Join us as we release our next quarterly forecast for 2012 and discuss how the campaign effects economic policy.
