The second quarter of 2023 is a pivotal moment in the U.S. economy. Will inflation continue to abate? Will the U.S. economy enter a recession this year? Are salaries rising as fast in 2023 as they did in 2022? Are backlogs increasing or decreasing? What data are leading firms using to predict what is to come?

The session will include an overview of the performance of the U.S. economy, results from the latest quarterly Engineering Business Sentiment study and private market insights.

In addition, we will discuss the results of our data with our expert panel of CEOs. We will ask their opinions on the results of our data and what their own research sources say about the coming year.

You will leave this session with a better understanding of the current state of the engineering economy as well as thoughts on what lies ahead.
