Will a Trump Administration Disrupt the Expansion?

2017/18 Economic Forecast

Professor Tim Duy, Economist, University of Oregon

Senior Director, Oregon Economic Forum



The expansion will enter its eight year this summer, putting it into contention for the longest running expansion in US history. Will the economy pass that milestone, or is it set to tumble? Tim Duy will review the current economic environment and explain his outlook for the next year. He will cover the national, state and local economies. In particular, Tim will explain the warning signs that signal the expansion is drawing to a close and whether the Trump administration is more likely to push that timing forward or pull it back.
