THE ECONOMY ANALYSIS // Chief Economist Lindsey Piegza will look at the pace of our economic recovery and what it means going forward for overall growth, interest rates and monetary policy. She will cover macro-economic trends in consumer behaviors and in the manufacturing sector, in addition to new Federal Reserve policy initiatives and potential economic effects of these changes. She will also examine economic growth in the US as a whole and its effects on interest rates.

After years of rapid economic expansion in Central Oregon, the slowing of the regional economy became widely evident in 2019. Although the economy continues to grow the slowdown feels like a radical shift from our previous trajectory. Damon Runberg, Regional Economist with the Oregon Employment Department will discuss the factors leading to this recent slowdown and the ramifications of slowing growth on job seekers in the context of our relatively thin labor market.
