The President of the National Association for Business Economics, Kenneth D. Simonson, will present "Ceiling Our Fate, or Will '13 Bring Luck?"
Resolution (for now) of uncertainty over the tax code should unleash pent-up investment in equipment and structures, as well as more hiring. But the debt ceiling threatens to put a lid on expansion. Immediately following NABE's Policy Conference in D.C., NABE President (and chief economist for the Associated General Contractors of America), Ken Simonson, will discuss the outlook as reflected in NABE member surveys, along with his views on construction and housing.
Ken Simonson is Chief Economist for the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC), the leading national association for construction contractors, suppliers and service providers. He joined AGC in 2001 and has since provided insight into the economy and what it implies for construction and related industries. Ken has 40 years of experience analyzing, advocating and communicating about economic and tax issues for a variety of business groups, federal agencies and an economic consultant.
Ken began a year as president of the National Association for Business Economics at the NABE annual meeting in New York City in October. He was president of the National Economists Club, now a NABE chapter, in 2000.
Ken has a BA in economics from the University of Chicago, an MA from Northwestern University, and he has taken advanced graduate courses at the Université de Paris, Johns Hopkins and Georgetown Universities.
