Sign up for our awesome San Francisco Bay Area
Tech Events weekly email newsletter.
High inflation, rising interest rates, sweeping tech layoffs, a crypto meltdown. The recent economic news has been less than encouraging, leading the International Monetary Fund to warn of storm clouds descending on the global economy. At the same time, GDP in the United States grew to more than $20 trillion in 2022. The Bay Area, largely thanks to tech, had the fastest growing economy in the United States, with GDP increasing 4.8 percent. The United States is at or near full employment. What does it all mean for workers, investors, & Americans' pocketbooks? What impact are the Fed's actions having?

Michael Boskin of Stanford's Hoover Institution, former chair of the President's Council of Economic Advisors, will share his insights into the U.S. economy, productivity, the evolution of work & impact of tech, & whether we will tip into a recession. UC Berkeley's Maurice Obstfeld, former chief economist at the IMF, will assess the ongoing impact of the war in Ukraine, China's COVID woes, & other trends shaping the global economy.

Join us for The Commonwealth Club's annual Walter E. Hoadley Bank of America economic forecast.

11:30 a.m. doors open & check-in; 12-1 p.m. program (all times PST)
