Breakfast Networking and Presentation:

The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly by Dr. Anirban Basu

Join us for February's networking event! Enjoy a delicious breakfast and insightful presentation by Dr. Anirban Basu. 

Has the Federal Reserve successfully engineered a soft landing? Or, is the confluence of geopolitical conflict, a presidential election, rising consumer debt levels, and still high interest rates conspiring to produce an economic downturn in 2024?

It is difficult to know whether 2024 will be a good year – but one thing is clear – it will be a very interesting one.

You'll want to hear Dr. Basu's in-depth analysis of major factors shaping economic outcomes, including interest rates, global conflict, wage dynamics, business confidence, and demographics. You'll find out his forecast for the coming year, highlighting the major risks that economic stakeholders will likely encounter.

Presenter: Dr. Anirban Basu: Anirban Basu is Chairman & CEO of Sage Policy Group, Inc., an economic and policy consulting firm headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland with an office in Orlando, Florida. He serves as the chief economist function for Associated Builders and Contractors, the Construction Financial Management Association, the Modular Building Institute, the Maryland Bankers Association, and several others. He has taught at several universities, most frequently at Johns Hopkins University. He currently teaches History of Economic Thought at Goucher College as their Distinguished Economist in Residence. He holds four graduate degrees, including a J.D. and a Ph.D.
