A highly respected economist will be the keynote presenter at the Association for Corporate Growth-Arizona Chapter’s January 9 breakfast, providing an overview of the economic environment and a forecast for the upcoming year.
James Glassman, Managing Director and Head Economist for the Commercial Banking division of Chase, is the keynote speaker for the breakfast event. The event will take place from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, January 9 at the Arizona Biltmore Resort Grand Ballroom.
Glassman is a renowned economist who will provide an overview of the state of the economy in 2018 and insight on what factors will affect it moving forward.
A publisher of independent research on the principal forces shaping the economy and financial markets, Mr. Glassman is regularly cited in the financial media, where he is also a frequent commentator on economic policy issues.
Additionally, he is a long-standing participant in the widely followed Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia Survey of Professional Forecasters and the National Association of Business Economists’ panel of macro-economic forecasters.
“We are looking forward to hearing James’ remarks on the economy, especially in the wake of the tax cut bill passed at the end of 2017,” said Mike Smiggen, President of ACG Arizona and Senior Vice President of Alliance Bank of Arizona. “It should be an interesting presentation for anyone seeking insight into how the economy might evolve in the coming year.”
