The AAII Philadelphia Chapter presents...

"Economic Outlook"

    Discussed by:

    Luke Tilley
    Regional Economic Adviser, Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia

As we approach the fifth anniversary of the financial meltdown that caused our economic near-death experience, it is time to learn the extent to which our economy has healed. Thus, we are very fortunate that Dr. Luke Tilley of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia will brief us on exactly that. How is our economy doing now? Will our gross domestic product (GDP) finally start to grow at a reasonable rate? When might the unemployment rate drop back to normal? Will inflation remain only a nuisance, or might it become large enough to seriously threaten the value of our assets? How healthy is the Delaware Valley?s economy compared to that of the rest of our country? If you want to find out, be sure to attend our meeting.

The members comprise all levels of understanding, from the inexperienced to the seasoned investor. The experienced members are always willing to assist the less knowledgeable. We meet every third Saturday of each month from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Please email the group leader for information and directions.
