Economy grows despite threats – UT San Diego

January 28, 2013

Threats to its recovery remain, but overall San Diego’s economy is continuing to expand. That’s what a panel of economists and business executives told about 400 people Friday at the University of San Diego at the 29th Annual San Diego County Economic Roundtable.

The panelists touched on national and local economic progress, job growth, housing, military, and clean technology.

“San Diego’s economy is healing,” said Lynn Reaser, chief economist at Point Loma Nazarene University. “It’s not (healing) as rapidly as we’d expect but we shouldn’t be overly pessimistic.”

The roundtable was jointly put on by the County of San Diego, the San Diego Workforce Partnership, the University of San Diego School of Business Administration, and U-T San Diego.

Here are some of the highlights the speakers shared at the university’s Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice. Read Full Story by Jonathan Horn, UT San Diego.
