New Braunfels Business University presents Keith R. Phillips, the Assistant Vice President and Senior Economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, San Antonio Branch. Phillips will be giving a presentation on the Federal Reserve forecast for the Texas and US economy in 2017. A representative from the Federal Reserve last presented to a sold out crowd in 2014. Since then, the Texas economy was hit hard by low oil prices in 2015 and 2016 but managed to add jobs at a mild pace. In the second half of 2016, the energy sector stabilized and job growth picked up. Americans have now voted in a new President of the United States.
Keith Phillips joined the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas in January 1984. His areas of concentration include regional economics and economic forecasting. Research Papers in Economics, which tracks publications in economics, ranks Phillips in the top five percent of economists across the world in terms of the number of distinct publications. Over the past sixteen years he has been the most accurate forecaster for Texas job growth in the Western Blue Chip Economic Forecast.
In August, 1996, Phillips was transferred to the San Antonio branch in an effort to improve the regional economic coverage of the Dallas office and to better serve the needs of the South Texas community. Phillips teaches courses in managerial economics and quantitative analysis in the Executive MBA program at UTSA. He obtained his Ph.D. in economics from Southern Methodist University and holds a B.A. and M.A. in Economics and a Bachelor of Journalism degree in News/Editorial from the University of Missouri at Columbia.
