It is that time of the year again. My annual Economic Outlook Conference will be coming up on Thursday morning, December 3. It will be a Zoom webinar. It does not seem like the right time to do a live presentation at the Daniel Island Club.
The good news is that some of you who are not physically located in the Charleston, S.C. area may be able to join us this year for the first time.
There is plenty to talk about, and a wide range of very divergent views. I will provide you with my thoughts on all this and then, at the end, you can decide if that makes any sense.
Hope to “see” you on Thursday morning, December 3. When you register please make sure that your e-mail address is correct. I will send the Zoom link to that e-mail address a couple of days prior to the event.
