The Economy - What, When and Why? The 2010 Economic Forecast

The Economy – What, When and Why?
The 2010 Economic Forecast

Join Beta Gamma Sigma of New York City for an insightful and exciting discussion of the economy from both a regional and global perspective. In this past year we’ve experienced unprecedented business failures, yeoman actions by the US government to “right” both the economy and the financial and manufacturing sectors, and global actions to mutually bring about a return to stability and future growth.

Certainly no one has a better perspective on the economic issues and potential solutions (or alternatives) that the Federal Reserve. For this year’s economic forecast, we’ve been fortunate to bring to BGS-NYC the New York Fed’s Director of Regional Affairs, and formerly their head of domestic and international research, Erica Groshen. She will discuss “where the economy is going and why?” Plenty of time will also be available to attendees for specific questions and answers.

When:  Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

Where: The Williams Club
             24 East 39th Street (between Madison and Park)
             NYC, NY
Time:  Reception beginning 6:00PM

Price: $35 BGS-NYC members, $45 Non BGS-NYC members and other guests

Space is limited.  Register Here
