8:00 – 9:30 am

The National Economy & “Super Prices” Impacting the Louisiana Economy

Loren Scott, PhD • Loren C. Scott & Associates, Inc. • Baton Rouge, LA

The strength of the Louisiana going forward depends on key "drivers". Will the record-setting growth performance of the national economy come to an end? What role do tariffs play in this scenario? Will the price of money — the interest rate — rise enough to stifle growth? Where might oil and natural gas prices be going and what role will OPEC+ play?
