San Bernardino County is ready to get Back to Business. Following an unprecedented 15 months of business closures and restrictions on activity due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the state of California is on the cusp of fully reopening. A key question looming over this long-awaited news is how long will it take for businesses and the economy to recover? Will things return to trend by the end of 2021? 2022?

Renowned economist and forecaster Christopher Thornberg will answer this and other pressing questions as he delivers a new forecast for the U.S., California, and San Bernardino County economies. His bright, data-based outlook is built on the recovery already happening in labor markets across the nation – and on the strong growth that has occurred throughout the pandemic in housing, personal income, savings rates, and other key indicators.

Join us for a clear sketch of our near-term future as we emerge from one of the most extraordinary economic periods in history.
