Local Government Finance in a Turbulent Economy Webinar
Date: June 27, 2012
Location: Webinar begins at 10 a.m.
Local government budgets will be affected by several economic forces that are beyond the control of local officials. The rate of the national and state economic recovery, the condition of the housing market, and international economic events will all affect both the revenues and the expenses of local governments. More importantly, the duration of the financial stress now facing local governments will be determined, in part, by the duration of these events.
This three-part series of webinars will examine (a) the origins of the international economic crisis that began in 2007, (b) the state of the economy in 2012, and (c) the short term and longer term outlook for the national and international economies and its potential impact on local government finance.
