Economic Outlook & Breakfast with Dr. Chris Thornberg, Founding Partner, Beacon Economics

A perennial favorite, Dr. Chris Thornberg will be returning to Sonoma County with another lively and informative outlook for California and Sonoma County.  Dr. Thornberg is a Founding Partner of Beacon Economics and is widely considered to be one of California’s leading economists.  An expert in economic forecasting, regional economics, labor markets, economic policy, and industry and real estate analysis, he was one of the earliest and most adamant predictors of the sub-prime mortgage market collapse and of the global economic recession that followed in 2008.  Active on many high profile advisory boards, and oft quoted and interviewed for major national media outlets, it is a pleasure to once again welcome him to Sonoma County.
