During this special event, local economist Ken Louie, Ph.D., director of the Economic Research Institute of Erie (ERIE) and associate professor of economics in the Black School of Business at Penn State Behrend, will discuss the real facts, figures and trends behind the economic outlook for 2019. He will be joined by David N. Taylor, president and chief executive officer of the Pennsylvania Manufacturers’ Association, the statewide trade organization representing the manufacturing sector in Pennsylvania’s public policy process, to examine the potential impact of foreign steel tariffs in the next year.
“We always look forward to Dr. Louie’s outlook briefing, and we are thrilled that Dave Taylor will be here to provide his insights on tariffs and trade. These are very important topics for our business community right now, especially any industry doing business in the aluminum, steel, foreign auto, tool or machined parts markets,” said MBA President and CEO John Krahe. “Our goal is to keep our members informed and address any key questions they may have.”
