WEBINAR DESCRIPTION

Anirban Basu, chief economist for Associated Builders and Contractors, returns for his “2022 Mid-Year Construction Economic Update and Forecast,” in which he’ll review the year to date and demystify the ever-changing economic landscape. Basu will address the biggest concerns for contractors, including, but not limited to, the cost of labor and materials and the impact of the $1 trillion infrastructure package, in addition to presenting his exclusive commercial construction forecast.

Basu will also discuss portions of the general economy affecting contractors: inflation (or “stagflation”), the Federal Reserve's interest rate increases, unemployment and labor figures and how changes in consumer demand influence shifts in market sectors.
