On September 27, 2017, CREW Chicago hosted its annual Economics Program before a capacity crowd at the East Bank Club. Russell T. Price, the Senior Economist for Ameriprise Financial, spoke about the state of the United States economy.
In a largely upbeat presentation, Mr. Price reported on various aspects of the economy and addressed the surprising run in the domestic stock market. In contrast to many other commentators, Mr. Price argued that the current stock values are actually supported by strong fundamentals in the United States economy. Mr. Price conceded that unforeseen events could negatively impact the stock market, but pointed out that over the past decades, the stock markets have rebounded after downturns caused by the September 11th attacks, the technology bubble and the Great Recession.
The final luncheon for the 2017 calendar year is scheduled for October 18, 2017. A panel discussion will address Disruptors: Data, Drones and Driverless Cars. Many of the luncheon programs this year have sold out, so be sure to register as soon as possible!
