Webinar Description

Crafted with commercial contractors in mind, ABC Chief Economist Anirban Basu’s presentation will reflect on an unusual year—one that started with high inflation and fears of an impending recession but ultimately held steady, producing more stable growth than anticipated—and will continue with a look forward into 2024 and beyond.

As always, Basu offers insights on challenges facing the industry, sharing data and insights on labor expenses, materials pricing, market sector growth and construction spending, as well as the latest on inflation and the Fed’s efforts to engineer a soft landing and his predictions as to if and/or when we’ll actually see a recession.
