George Hammond and Sharon B. Megdal

Join us for breakfast with Eller College of Management's George Hammondand Dr. Sharon Megdal, director of the University of Arizona Water Resources Research Center, as they offer analysis and insights on what to expect for the state economy and Arizona water resources in the future.

The Arizona economy continues to churn out solid gains, even as concerns about water sustainability surge. Both population and jobs rose at a pace faster than the U.S. in 2023. Income also continued to rise, outpacing decelerating inflation. Housing affordability remained low with elevated house prices and increased mortgage interest rates. Where are the global, national, state and local economies headed next? How will Arizona's water issues impact economic development and housing? Will restrictive monetary policy succeed in bringing inflation down without causing a recession? Will housing affordability continue to plummet? What role do local and state water policies play in all of this?
