Will the New Year be cheery or dreary for construction?


Ken Simonson

Chief Economist, General Contractors Association of America

Federal Reserve Bank, Downtown Los Angeles

 Construction grew unevenly in 2017 nationwide but did well in much of California, including Los Angeles. But some segments appear to be approaching saturation. Meanwhile, there are new uncertainties about impacts from possible tax, trade and immigration policy changes. What do these imply for demand for different building types, funding sources and worker availability? Ken Simonson, chief economist for the leading construction trade association, will describe the current state of play and provide his forecasts for the local and national industry in 2018.

Who’s leaving California and why it matters

Every year between 2000 and 2015 more people left California than moved in from other states. In fact, without international immigration to California, the state’s population would be shrinking.

So who is leaving the state–and why does it matter anyway?

In her speech to NABE Los Angeles on December 5, Leslie Appleton-Young, Chief Economist at the California Association of Realtors, dug beneath the demographic data, examining the causes–and likely economic consequences–of the state’s changing population.
