Keynote Presentation: Economic & Commercial Real Estate Outlook: Growth, Anxiety and DC CRE

April 17, 2018 8:30 AM – 9:30 AM Hall Keynote

Kevin Thorpe, Global Chief Economist, Cushman & Wakefield


A stronger economic trajectory is forming, tax cuts and government spending increases kicking in, synchronized global growth is upon us, and yet, there is anxiety. The cycle is getting long, stock market volatility is back and so is the specter of higher inflation/interest rates, a new Fed chair takes over, and of course, Trump.  How will these factors, among others, impact the property markets going forward and what should we expect for the Greater Washington DC Region?
