Manufacturing, Trade and Growth in Minnesota: The Outlook for 2020

Presenter: Dr King Banaian

2019 was not the best year to be in manufacturing. Between trade wars and perhaps-too-high interest rates the economy slowed by mid-year but seemed to pick up the pace by year-end. What’s going to happen next? King Banaian, dean of the School of Public Affairs at St. Cloud State University, returns with his look at Minnesota manufacturing for 2020. What’s happening with trade next? How have manufacturers adjusted to very low unemployment rates? And most importantly, could 2020 be better?

Time: 3:30 pm to 6:30 pm
