2014 Economic Outlook: There Are No Guarantees


The Great Recession ended more than 4 years ago but the subsequent recovery has been far from great. Despite GDP growth, unemployment rates remain stuck above 7 percent and household incomes have stagnated. In this presentation Dr. Shields will use his 2014 statewide forecast to frame a discussion about the growing disconnect between economic growth and household prosperity in the United States and Colorado, and how this relationship will evolve in 2014.
