Economic Update
PNW Impact – Future Forward

The April 2020 World Economic Outlook forecasted growth for the global economy in 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic has certainly changed that. What is the future forward for the economy? More importantly, what is the outlook for our corner of the USA? How are real estate assets a leading indicator of what is to come?

Our Speaker:
