(Columbia, S.C.) — The University of South Carolina’s Darla Moore School of Business will host the 41st Annual Economic Outlook Series. The EOC will explore whether the South Carolina and national economies will continue recovering going into 2022 from COVID-19 disruptions and uncertainty.
The events will address a host of pandemic-related questions. With ongoing uncertainty stemming from new waves of COVID-19, what will 2022 look like for the South Carolina and national economies? What will happen after the unprecedented federal stimulus winds down? Will the roaring ‘20s stock market keep roaring, or are we headed for correction? Will housing prices and rents keep rising at record rates? What about jobs and business expansion — will the economy move toward full employment or stagnate? Will there continue to be supply disruptions and labor shortages?
The Moore School will hold its annual conference on Tuesday, Dec. 7, from 12-4 p.m., with state and national political and economic experts. The event will address the dramatic changes to the economy during the pandemic. Looking ahead, speakers will provide an outlook for jobs, housing and business conditions. The event will be interactive and will include several opportunities for Q&As.
2021 speakers include:
• Mick Mulvaney, former White House chief of staff and South Carolina congressman
• Laura Ullrich, regional economist, Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond, Charlotte branch
• Joey Von Nessen, research economist, UofSC Darla Moore School of Business
• Doug Woodward, division of research director and professor, UofSC Darla Moore School of Business
Attendees for the Economic Outlook Conference will have the option to attend in person or virtually. The price of attendance is $55 in person with lunch and $40 to attend virtually. Media and UofSC students, staff and faculty can attend for free. Media who are interested in attending, please contact Marjorie Riddle Duffie. Register or learn more by visiting sc.edu/moore/eoc.
