The Presidential election will take place this year against the backdrop of uncomfortably high unemployment rates, slow recovery in the economy, and an ongoing federal budget deficit. What lies beyond the November election? The answer is the “fiscal cliff," referring to a set of tax increases and expenditure cuts that are scheduled to go into effect at the beginning of 2013, and which can potentially stall out the still sluggish economic recovery.
This informative, one-hour webinar with the LAEDC's Chief Economist Dr. Robert Kleinhenz will answer the questions:
- What is the Southern California “angle” on the budget deficit and the fiscal cliff?
- What is the likely impact of sequestration budget cuts on Southern California’s industries?
- Can we avoid going over the fiscal cliff?
Dr. Robert Kleinhenz will discuss the importance of these issues for Southern California residents and businesses, and explain how some companies are already preparing for the fiscal cliff.
Thank you, and we look forward to your participation!
