Forum Breakfast: State of the Economy

Wednesday, February 16, 2022 (7:30 AM - 9:00 AM) (PST)


It's no secret that Portland’s economy has taken a hit over the past two years. Once one of the country’s most dynamic markets, Portland has been enduring effects of the pandemic, rises in crime and homelessness, labor and housing shortages, and a growing tax burden. It’s time to take stock of the health of our local economy and measure how Portland compares to markets across the country.

Join us on February 16 for our annual “State of the Economy” event. We’ll unpack the latest economic data—and reveal exclusive new research—to illustrate economic trends, call attention to challenges in the year ahead, and highlight green shoots for the economy

Presentation by:

John Tapogna, Partner and Senior Policy Advisor, ECONorthwest
