QUARTERLY ECONOMIC OUTLOOK

QUARTERLY ECONOMIC OUTLOOK

Our December UCLA Anderson Forecast will address the critical infrastructure investments that California requires for a prosperous future. Some of these requirements are made obvious by our daily commutes past parched lawns and dying trees, on roads crowded with vehicles and peppered with potholes, while avoiding the latest water-main breaks. “More of the same” is not the answer for roads and water infrastructure. We need infrastructure that allows us to use more effectively the limited space and the limited water that nature has provided. To attract the creative workers who are so important for the prosperity of all of us, we need better quality-of-life infrastructure to complement the extraordinary climate that we enjoy in California. Sunshine alone is no longer enough. The time has come to express our optimism with action on all of these fronts.
