Slideshow: Scenes from BizSense’s 2024 Economic Forecast event

 

What better way to start your day than to ponder interest rates, inflation and micro- and macroeconomics at 7:30 in the morning?

Nearly 400 Richmonders did just that on Tuesday as they took part in Richmond BizSense’s fourth annual Economic Forecast event, presented by PNC Bank.

Held in-person at University of Richmond’s Jepson Alumni Center (and broadcast virtually) the event featured two separate panels of speakers: the first consisting of six local business leaders from a variety of industries, and the second with three economists from academia, the Federal Reserve and the private sector.

The business leaders on stage were: Brian Haney of Kinsale Capital Group; John Levy of John B. Levy & Co.; Mike Lindsey of Lindsey Food Group; Sarah Paxton of LaDiff; Dee Ann Remo of Heritage Wealth Advisors; and Jennifer Wakefield of the Greater Richmond Partnership.

The economist panel featured: Dean Croushore of University of Richmond; Renee Haltom of the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond; and Gus Faucher of PNC.

In addition to interest rates and inflation, they discussed labor and employment issues, supply chains, and their views on the regional and national economy and how they’re planning for the year ahead.

In case you missed the event and would like to glean some insights from the nine panelists, click here or the still image below to visit the BizSense online video store for access to a recording of the event. It’s the same price as the cost of a virtual ticket to Tuesday’s event.

This was a great event, both insightful and entertaining. I was particularly gratified to see the economists on the panel had the courage in these politically polarized times to agree that increased immigration is critical to America’s future prosperity.

The construction industry is currently short half a million workers, and by the end of 2025, we’ll be short 1 million construction workers if policies don’t change. Our Federal Government has approved gigantic upgrades to our national physical infrastructure, but right now, we don’t have the people to do the work.
