The Great Disruption: Top 5 Trends in a Post-Pandemic Economy

Chief Economist
Senior Vice President
Haus RE Brokerage

The pandemic disrupted all aspects of our lives and strained all sectors of the economy. In the short-term, individuals and businesses adapted. But what are the long-term consequences?
What fundamental economic shifts have already occurred that will affect our personal and professional lives, and what ripple effects have we not yet seen but should be prepared for? Join noted economist, Dr. Ralph McLaughlin, as he shares the top 5 trends that are shaping our post-pandemic recovery during this period of continued uncertainty. What economic harbingers should we be watching for? What sectors are poised to recover most quickly and robustly? What role do other forces, such as out-migration from urban centers and climate-related risks such as wildfires and drought, play in our recovery?
