    The Washington Area Economy: Repositioning for Renewed Growth

    Speaker: Dr. Stephen Fuller, Ph.D
    Dwight Schar Faculty Chair and University Professor Director,
    Center for Regional Analysis, School of Public Policy, George Mason University, Fairfax, VA (click here for bio)

    Description:
    The Washington area’s economic dependence on the federal economy peaked in 2010 when federal spending accounted for almost 40% of its GRP.  As this dependence has decreased the area’s economy has contracted significantly. The transition to a more business-to-business economy has implications for the transition for future growth.  Dr. Fuller will discuss the principal changes that occurred during the Great Recession, the impacts of federal spending reduction, the geographic distribution of these changes across the region, and what the changes will mean to the region’s growth future prospects – especially as they relate to income and employment.  Attend this luncheon program to consider what policy shifts will be needed to support these changes in order for the region to regain its vitality going forward.

    Learning Outcomes:
    Participants will
    - recognize principal changes to the economy during and after the Great Recession, the impacts of federal spending reduction and the geographic distribution of these changes across the regional economy
    - consider the impact of these changes on the region’s growth future prospects over the next five years
    - review changes in occupational changes brought by these changes and anticipated retirements and normal worker turnover
    - generate options for policy shifts to support these changes
