Chapman University’s Economic Forecasts have been regarded as the most accurate forecasts in the nation for years. And in the face of the pandemic, that did not change. Chapman accurately predicted the V-shape recovery of 2020. Now, were we right about the strong upward trend in Real GDP forecasted for 2021? Our forecast for 2021 will be analyzed, and trends for the latter half of the year will be revealed.

Thank you for joining us for our virtual update, complete with a live Q&A with the experts, on Wednesday, June 16 at 3 p.m. PDT.

Through the generosity of our sponsors, this event is available complimentary to view online.

Economic Forecast

As Chapman University’s forecasting has consistently outperformed agencies and institutions participating in the Blue Chip Economic Indicators Survey, the university’s Economic Forecasts are must-see events. The insights from each presentation, gathered by Chapman’s A. Gary Anderson Center for Economic Research, have helped guide and fortify Southern California’s business communities for more than forty years.

In 2020, the two forecast conference events adopted a virtual format, reaching nearly 10,000 viewers across the globe. A new important metric was unveiled in December 2020, the Innovation Indicator, a scorecard that ranks regional economic growth based on success in creating jobs and expanding the innovation sector industry. This industry will again be reviewed and analyzed along with the vaccine’s rollout and other national issues influencing the economy. You won’t want to miss the forecasts in 2021.
