The vast majority of Americans see the upcoming presidential election as the single greatest threat to the country's economic well-being, according to a new report published earlier this month by Bankrate.
About 6 in 10 Democrats and 7 in 10 Republicans said "the outcome of the presidential election" would be the "biggest threat to the U.S. economy over the next six months" out of more than 1,000 respondents surveyed in Bankrate's latest poll.
Please join us for this informative breakfast and networking session when Ken Heaghney, State Economist, State of Georgia, will share his perspective on the potential impact of the November election, including:
- The economic environment and outlook that a new administration will face
- Trends and issues in key areas of the economy (labor markets, consumer sector, manufacturing, housing, trade, inflation, etc.)
- The critical policy challenges facing a new administration
