GSI’s annual economic forecast starts Wednesday at 7:30 a.m. downtown

Tomorrow (Nov. 20) morning is John Mitchell's annual poetic forecast of next year's economic performance.

Mitchell, (pictured, and formerly of US Bank), has been a longtime provider of the annual forecast of economic conditions facing the region in 2014.

He and Grant Forsyth, formerly of EWU and now chief economist for Avista, are the two presenters in the annual economic forecast presented by Greater Spokane Incorporated.

The event starts with a breakfast at 7 a.m., at Spokane Convention Center, followed by the program running from 7:30-9:30 a.m.

The theme is "Tapering, Tepid and Transitioning."  Hmm, I wonder if Mitchell is into hip-hop rhythms this year.

You can register online at for $50. Members can pay a lesser amount.

There's a hashtag for catching updates from the session, using #econforecast.
