Lunch and Learn: The Bowtie Economist

Friday, June 29 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm • Organized By iWerx
1520 Clay Street, North Kansas City, MO 64116


In this always entertaining and very informative presentation on the economy that frequently begins with a fun and fast moving “top ten list,” Dr. Eisenberg discusses how GDP will perform, what interest rates will do, how the labor market will behave, how much firms will spend, how the residential housing sectorand real estate in general will perform, and how a whole host of other economic variables (including incomes, auto sales, savings rates, energy prices, exports, government spending, etc.) are bound to impact the economy this year—no sugar coating—and why.

You will laugh out loud, and most importantly, you will UNDERSTAND this typically dense topic. Edge of your seat doesn’t usually describe a reaction to a presentation on economics, but this one will not disappoint.

Understanding current economic conditions is important for every professional. Knowing what’s coming can inform decision making at all levels. In this presentation, Dr. Eisenberg will also comment on the strengths and weaknesses of the heartland economy, comparing the two sides of the state, and urban vs. rural opportunities.

If you are a student with valid ID, an elected official, or a deputy of an elected official, please RSVP directly to For you, this event is FREE.
