The New England Economic Partnership is hosting a conference on the critical issues confronting the economy.  The morning session will begin with an analysis of the current outlook for the U.S. economy by Mark Zandi, Chief Economist of Moody’s Analytics. NEEP’s forecasters will then discuss the economic outlook for the New England region and for each of the six states. This will include detailed forecasts of key economic indicators, including employment by industry as well as the outlook for the region’s housing markets.

After lunch, there will be a panel discussion focused on the economic outlook, post-election, moderated by Jim Brett of the New England Council.  Questions will be posed to Mark Zandi and the NEEP forecast managers by members of the New England media, including John Chesto of the Boston Business Journal, Robert Whitcomb of the Providence Journal, and Mark Murphy of the Providence Business News.
