Little Rock Regional Economic Briefing

December 1, 2017,

Thanks to all who attended this morning’s Little Rock Regional Economic Briefing, where I presented my forecast for the Arkansas economy.

Special thanks to the Little Rock Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis for co-sponsoring and hosting the event, and particularly to President James Bullard for his presentation on monetary policy and the national economic outlook.

Here is a copy of handouts for my presentation:  Pakko Forecast 2017.

Join us as St. Louis Fed President James Bullard and Michael Pakko of the Arkansas Economic Development Institute give updates on economic conditions and the outlook for the state and the nation. Dr. Pakko is chief economist and state economic forecaster with the institute. The Little Rock Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis and the institute, which is at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, are hosting the event. The program also will include:

  • A welcome from Robert Hopkins, senior vice president and regional executive of the Little Rock Branch;

The program will be of particular interest to business leaders and others who want to keep up on current economic conditions. A hot buffet breakfast will be served. The event is free, but register soon, because space is limited. The deadline is Nov. 28.
