What awaits Indiana’s — and the nation’s — economy in 2017?
Researchers at the Indiana Business Research Center will offer their best guess Thursday morning by kicking off their annual Business Outlook Tour at the Conrad Indianapolis Hotel at 50 W. Washington St., followed by a noon presentation at the Indiana Memorial Union in Bloomington.
Sponsored by IU’s Kelley School of Business, the IU Alumni Association, IU campuses statewide and numerous community organizations, the event features panelists from the Kelley School and IU, along with local panelists from other IU campuses and other universities.
Panelists appearing at the 7:30 a.m. presentation in Indianapolis include:
- Kyle Anderson, clinical assistant professor of business economics;
- Robert Neal, professor of finance;
- Timothy Slaper, the Indiana Business Research Center’s director of economic analysis;
- Bill Witte, associate professor emeritus of economics and co-director of the Center for Econometric Model Research.
Ken Carow, associate dean of faculty and research, a professor of finance and the Hatfield Fellow at the Kelley School in Indianapolis, will moderate the discussion and public question-and-answer session.
From Nov. 4 to Nov. 18, the tour — presented by the Kelley School of Business since 1972 — will make stops in eight Indiana cities. A tour schedule is available here.
