Titled “A Region in Transition: Changes and Trends in Consumer Behavior,” the morning conference will be hosted by Frank Mottek, anchor for KNX 1070 NEWSRADIO, and will provide a comprehensive, data-driven report on the current state of the South Bay and Los Angeles County economies, as well as the outlook for 2018.
The economic report will be delivered by Robert Kleinhenz, executive director of research at L.A.-based Beacon Economics, the independent research and consulting firm that developed the economic forecast report for CSUDH.
“The South Bay is one of the more dynamic regions in Southern California, as it has been for decades. Its economy has effectively reached full employment, but this doesn’t mean we will stop growing. Rather, we will proceed at a more measured pace in 2018,” said Kleinhenz regarding one of the findings in the report. “Of course, recent economic prosperity has also translated into higher rents and home prices, contributing to a housing affordability problems that South Bay resident know all too well.”
The third annual forecast event will also include reports by CSUDH professors on regional economic issues, and a consumer trends panel featuring top local industry and education leaders discussing some of the most current trends in business and the news, such as the implications of marijuana legalization, and the rise of online shopping and food delivery.
