UCLA Anderson Forecast
April 2014 Economic Outlook
JW Marriott L.A. Live, Downtown Los Angeles | Wednesday, April 2, 2014 | 7:00am - 11:30am
Economic Forecast Conference

Water isn't the only drought in Los Angeles. Los Angeles, Detroit and Cleveland share the dubious distinction of cities with the weakest job growth since 1990. That’s a shocking club for Los Angeles to be a member of. Many of the problems the city currently faces would be less severe if employment and city revenues had been growing more rapidly.

Themed “Solutions for the City,” this UCLA Anderson Forecast presentation focuses on job readiness and job availability. What can we do to ensure that our children will be ready for the jobs of the 21st Century? What can we do to make sure that employers will be attracted to Los Angeles?
