Economic Trends 2022

January 27 @ 7:00 am - 10:30 am

The annual Economic Trends Event, presented by BizTimes Milwaukee, hosts a vibrant discussion between prominent Wisconsin business leaders, state representatives, and industry experts on the state of the economy. This annual event includes a macroeconomic outlook on the economy from Michael Knetter, Ph.D., economist and president of the University of Wisconsin Foundation.

Economic Trends caters to all business leaders, providing insight into the economic outlook through analysis of industry trends and current economic indicators. Selected panelists bring perspectives from their industry while providing forecasts about the year ahead in business. This event has been annually attended by business leaders in Southeastern Wisconsin and for many has become the first significant business function of the calendar year.


Inflation. Supply chain issues. Labor force challenges. The lingering COVID-19 pandemic. These and other factors are leading to major economic shifts and reallocations in supply and demand.

With so much in flux, what lies ahead for the economy in 2022? Will the Fed raise interest rates? Will consumer spending keep up as prices rise? What’s coming down the road for tax policy and government spending?

Economist Michael Knetter Ph.D. and leading industry experts will provide their perspectives and answers to these questions and more at the 21st annual Economic Trends breakfast on January 27, 2022.

  • Michael Knetter Ph.D., University of Wisconsin Foundation 
  • Tina Chang, CEO, SysLogic
