CREW CHICAGO SEPTEMBER 12, 2018
FALL ECONOMIC FORUM: THE STATE OF OUR STATE
On September 12, 2018, CREW Chicago members and guests met at the East Bank Club for lunch and a discussion regarding “The State of Our State” – Areas of Strength and Opportunity in Illinois and Chicago.
Michele Pasquale, Managing Member and Founder of Meridian Financial Services, LLC, moderated the panel that included: Ryan James Boyle, Vice President and Sr. Economist at Northern Trust; Rick Mattoon, Sr. Economist and Economic Advisor at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago; and Liz Schuh, Principal Policy Analyst with the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP).
The consensus among the speakers was that although the economy may be doing well, our state financial budgetary crisis could have real everyday economic impacts on the future of our city. For example, state budget issues may preclude Amazon from selecting Chicago as its new “HQ2” location.
