This is an event that we were thrilled to bring back because there is such a great response to this topic.


David shared a quick summary of how COVID impacted the economy as well as other factors in changes to local finances. He also spoke about recent ups and downs in the CFNAI.

Fortunately, the us economy continues to grow, albeit slowly. He shared an update on supply chain pressures and how that has eased. He also shared some statistics on vehicle sales and spoke about UAW's negotiating strategy and past investments in the US.

His perspective on the housing market is that the market is showing indications of a turnaround. Jobs have also returned to levels higher than before the pandemic. David also shared some recent performance metrics on consumer goods, utilities, and exports.
