Local Government Finance in a Turbulent Economy

Dr. David Schweikhardt, Professor of Agriculture Economics at Michigan State University, is presenting a webinar on Local Government budgets will be affected by several economic forces that are beyond the control of local officials. The rate of the national and state economic recovery, the condition of the housing market, and international economic events will all affect both the revenues and the expenses of local governments. More importantly, the duration of the financial stress now facing local governments will be determined, in part, by the duration of these events.

Registration is required for the webinar; to register go to http://events.anr.msu.edu/event.cfm?folder=TurbulentEconomy2013
