Chief Economist of the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC)

Join Barton and BDO for our Breakfast Seminar:

Recessionary Shocks & NYC's Economic Resilience

As the specter of recession looms, economists remain divided about the timing and impact of the next recession.

We are in the midst of the longest economic expansion in US history. The Great Recession shook the US economy to its core, yet New York City rebounded quickly as the city engineered structural changes that have made NYC more economically resilient than ever.

Today, the NYC economy is robust and diverse. NYC’s GDP accounts for nearly 10% of the total US economy. NYC unemployment rates are at historic lows while our annual job growth exceeds the national average.

Join Dr. Fred Olayele, Chief Econmist of the New York City Economic Development Corporation (“NYCEDC”), as he sheds light on NYC industries’ vulnerabilities and  opportunities in the face of economic shocks. In this round table discussion, Dr. Olayele will explore the key pillars of NYCEDC’s recession-proof strategy while highlighting opportunities for NYC’s investor and business communities.


Please RSVP by February 20th. This invitation is non-transferable.
