Blue Chip Economic Forecast

What’s in store for Central Ohio’s economy in 2024? Inflation seems to be coming under control, and is well off its summer 2022 highs, yet the region’s labor market remains incredibly tight, with just 3.3% unemployment in October 2023. While the local economy appears to be booming from some perspectives, many residents are feeling left behind and left out. Will Central Ohio’s string of economic successes continue, or will the economy succumb to the slower growth and possible recession that many expect? Join us for the 25th annual official release of the Regionomics Columbus Economic Forecast and hear what the year ahead looks like for Central Ohio’s economy from a panel of leading experts at CMC’s first program of 2024 and one of our most popular forums of the year.

Featuring, Bill LaFayette, Ph.D., Owner, Regionomics, Ben Ayers, Senior Economist, Nationwide Insurance, and Joyce Chen, Ph.D., Professor, Economics, Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies, The Ohio State University, with host Mark Williams, Business Reporter, The Columbus Dispatch
