Supply chain problems. Workforce shortages. Inflation. As we approach two years of economic challenges due to COVID-19, there are two big questions: Where does the economy go from here? What does recovery look like? Join the KC Chamber and Mid-America Regional Council’s Chief Economist Frank Lenk for the 2022 Economic Forecast. Frank brings his unique and expert-lens as he looks at what will follow us into the new year from the 2021 economy. He then joins a panel featuring Chris Kuehl of Armada CI, Niki DaSilva of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, immigration attorney Mira Mdivani, and Angelique Nedved of SchoolSmartKC to discuss the workforce talent and pipeline, how immigration reform is impacting pandemic employment numbers, global supply chain issues, and inflation. Kansas City PBS’s Mary Sanchez moderates.
