The Economy in 2014 - The Year of the Rebound?


Join us for the 2014 economic forecast in Austin, Houston or Dallas as experts from the most active industries in Texas share their insights from a c-suite point of view. In Austin, the focus is on technology -- software, hardware and life sciences; in Houston, experts from health care, energy and big data will join the panel; and in Dallas, the sectors are manufacturing, retail and commercial development.

Some of the issues to be addressed: Will the federal debt load continue to drop? Will the GDP move beyond the two percent range into real recovery? Will unemployment drop below 7 percent? Can the Fed hold down inflation so businesses can access low cost capital for growth?
