Time: 12pm to 1pm EST
The Washington region is facing uncertain times. While job growth has been robust in certain sub-sectors and sub-regions, others have experienced decline and stagnation. At the same time, the Washington region is facing limited housing supply and high housing costs. The confluence of these forces are discussed in detail, with possible implications in the near-term.
