The National Economy: Future Bumps in the Road?
A UUCC Forum
Sunday, September 26, 2021 
9:30 - 10:45 am, via Zoom

How is the U.S. economy recovering from the Covid 19 pandemic?  Rising real estate prices, inflation, and help wanted signs are everywhere. Given the trillions spent on economic aid to the US population, when will the debt ceiling be raised?  When can the economy settle down, “get its act together”, and provide good jobs, low inflation, and balanced budgets?

Speaker: Mark Sniderman, CWRU Weatherhead School of Management and former Executive Vice-President, Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland.
