The Impact of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma on U.S. Manufacturing
As manufacturing executives struggle to assess the impact of two disastrous hurricanes on their business outlooks, the MAPI Foundation is here to help. In this 30-minute webinar, Chief Economist Cliff Waldman will provide a framework for understanding the impact of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma on the manufacturing sector as a whole as well as key industry subsectors.
The webinar will start with an overview of pre-hurricane data and a discussion of the Foundation's current forecast of U.S. manufacturing growth. Cliff will then examine how storm-related market shocks (ranging from supply chain disruption due to infrastructure damage and transportation challenges, to raw material price and supply disruptions) will affect the outlook. He will conclude by sharing a range of rebound scenarios for U.S. manufacturing and the key subsectors.
We want your questions. Cliff will be hosting Q&A after his presentation. Please submit questions during registration and/or during the webinar.
