What Is the Business Outlook Panel?

Indiana's Own Experts

Each fall, a group of IU faculty gathers at the Kelley School of Business to consider the economic outlook for the coming year.

Global. National. Local. Ag.

They forecast the prospects in terms of global, national, state, metropolitan and agriculture perspectives, and they also assess the outlooks for the financial and housing markets.

All Across Indiana

They then present their predictions to audiences across Indiana. In each city, an expert on the local economy joins the panel to discuss the outlook for the metro area.

A Diversity of Perspectives

The Indiana Business Outlook Panel™ Tour is unique in the fact that at each event you will hear the perspectives of several of the state's leading economic thinkers.
