COVID-19 has created an unpredictable economic landscape, with uncertainty surrounding lockdown restrictions and the timeline of a return to normalcy. Legislators at the state and local levels must understand how their industries interconnect within their specific region so as to accurately plan their economic futures.
Please feel free to join REMI CEO & Chief Economist Fred Treyz, Ph.D., Economic Associate Ian McGuire, & Economic Analyst Tobias Reynolds on Thursday, August 13th from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. (ET) for “REMI IQ+™ Model Launch Series: COVID-19 and the Economy,” their upcoming webinar that will describe how REMI’s new IQ+ model evaluates industry changes and their effect on the local economy and their fellow industries, with regards to COVID-19.
The REMI IQ+ model allows for quarterly economic impact analysis, which can assist users in comprehending how their regional industries intersect and impact economic indicators. This understanding can be extended to predictive policy analysis in order to understand the deeper impact of lockdown restrictions, reduced capacities, and changes in consumer behavior.
With the vital information that our innovative quarterly model provides, state and regional officials can better prioritize their policies and planning procedures in order to support their key industries during these challenging times.
