Ranking Policies and Projects in a Downturn

States need to be prepared in order to make tough policy decisions once the next recession hits the financial sector, whether that means implementing new taxes and/or cutting back on government spending.

Please feel free to join us in Cheyenne, Wyoming on Monday, December 9th from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. for "When the Music Stops: Ranking Policies and Projects in a Downturn," our upcoming luncheon presentation that evaluates the planning strategies for several states as the economy anticipates public finance disruptions.

According to a survey administered by the National Association for Business Economics, there is a 60% chance that a recession could occur by the end of 2020. Despite these odds, state funding and surpluses can only be accessed to combat the most mild of economic slowdowns.

Prioritizing government spending and finance options can be achieved within REMI's dynamic modeling software. Analysts in numerous industries utilize the REMI suite of models to examine and describe the impacts and effects of various improvements and public policies.

This includes the economic effects of transportation improvements, the financial considerations associated with raising the minimum wage, the employment impacts of incentives and tax policy changes, and the economic implications of energy and environmental regulations.

An overview of the nation's macroeconomic outlook, a demonstration on how to perform economic policy analysis, and the introduction of the newly-added project prioritization feature in our modeling software will be provided as part of this luncheon presentation.

Event offered free of charge; however, we do ask that you register in advance.
