The midterm elections, likelihood of recession and housing market are among the topics economist Jim Doti will discuss at the Economic Forecast Update June 23.

Doti Will Forecast Midterm Elections, Give Economic Update Chapman University’s renowned Economic Forecast Update is June 23.

Jim Doti thinks Chapman University’s Economic Forecast Update may be “the most important and useful in the 45-year history of the event.”

Doti, an economist and Chapman’s president emeritus, is planning to speak about the likelihood of a recession and “shocks to the economy” that are affecting things like home prices. The Forecast Update – scheduled 3 p.m. PDT Thursday, June 23 at the Musco Center for Performing Arts – will add the feature of Doti’s forecast of November’s midterm elections.

The Forecast, presented annually in December, gives insights into the economies of Orange County, California and the U.S. The Forecast Update in June revisits the data shared in December and Chapman’s econometric model is updated accordingly. 

The forecasts have consistently outperformed agencies and institutions participating in the Blue Chip Economic Indicators Survey and both the Economic Forecast and the Economic Forecast Update provide important information for the general public, executives, entrepreneurs and business leaders.

In 2020, the forecasts went virtual and reached nearly 10,000 people. This year, people can attend the June 23 Forecast Update in person or online.

  • Professor Raymond Sfeir, Ph.D., director of the A. Gary Anderson Center for Economic Research and A. Gary Anderson Chair of Economic Analysis in the George L. Argyros School of Business and Economics.
