Economic Forecast Breakfast planned
October 10, 2005
CARROLLTON, GA - Economic pressures affect every sector of our society and business leaders will discover just how much when Dr. Donald Ratajczak and Michael Chriszt present their views at the 2005 Economic Forecast Breakfast, Thursday, Nov. 10, on the University of West Georgia campus.
Ratajczak, a Regents Professor of Economics Emeritus at Georgia State University, is one of the most quoted economists in the world and consults with senior management of major corporations and financial institutions. Chriszt, director of International and Regional Analysis at the Atlanta Federal Reserve, excels at analyzing political and economic conditions in Georgia and the Southeast.
Dr. David Boldt, chair of the Department of Economics at UWG, said participants will not be disappointed.
“The speakers will address important economic issues of the day,” said Boldt. “The impact of high energy prices and Hurricane Katrina on the state and regional economy will certainly be discussed.”
Both speakers will use their expertise to share economic forecasts for West Georgia, the state of Georgia and the United States. The West Georgia region includes Carroll, Coweta, Douglas, Haralson, and Paulding Counties. Attendees will also receive a copy of the 2005 West Georgia Regional Outlook.
The conference is scheduled from 7:30– 9 a.m., at the Z-6 building on the UWG campus. More than 350 business leaders, educators, government, and agency officials attended last year’s event. Hosted by the UWG Department of Economics, the Richards College of Business and the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce, the breakfast is open to anyone interested in the future of the economy.
Tickets are $25 per person or $175 for a table of eight. To reserve space for the breakfast, contact the UWG Economics Department at 678-839-6477 or by email at email@example.com.
