NCBJ: Economist Fireside Chat

The record-setting 11-year national economic expansion has now been displaced by the worst pandemic in a generation. In this session, moderated by Bankruptcy Judge Michelle Harner (D. Md.), Professors Abbye Atkinson (UC Berkeley School of Law) and Roger Tutterow (Kennesaw State University) consider how pandemic-related economic challenges are impacting household spending, corporate performance, and the ability of both consumers and corporate entities to service existing debt obligations. The discussion will also engage with issues such as reductions in labor force participation, the Federal Reserve’s commitment to low short-term interest rates, trends in access to credit and forbearance of debt, the role of debt in smoothing household consumption, and the socioeconomic implications of these shifts. You will not want to miss this lively discussion concerning the perfect storm we are now experiencing.
