The economies of the United States and the Inland Empire have recovered from the pandemic-induced recession, but the excessive fiscal stimulus that has been doused across the country during the crisis has left us in overheated and of overstimulation. With aggregate demand at an incandescent level and the country operating at full capacity, inflation is soaring and interest rates are rising even as the trade deficit has reached its second highest level on record.

These clear symptoms of overheating are widely interpreted as signs of a short-term recession. According to renowned economists at the Center for Economic Forecasting, the real risks lie further down the road. But while the collective focus remains on the immediate threat of recession, unresolved imbalances within the US economy continue to grow, raising the risk of a very real recession in the future. And while the Inland Empire’s economy has boomed by most measures, the wider fortunes of the region will be at stake when that day of reckoning arrives.

Join some of the nation’s top economists and get answers to today’s most pressing questions:

  • What’s next for the economy? Is a recession inevitable? If yes, when?

  • Is inflation approaching its peak in the United States? How far will he go?

  • What does rising interest rates mean for the global economy?

  • Will California’s ever-hot real estate markets be safe havens in the next few years?

  • How will the Inland Empire’s main employment sectors be affected by a downturn?

  • Should IE local wage growth continue?
