2019 Is Going Strong. How Positive Are You About The A/E Optimism?

U.S. and Canadian GDP has been growing steadily since The Great Recession. And 2019 continues the trend as the economy is going strong.

Since 2003, PSMJ has asked A/E firm leaders every three months about their outlook for over 50 A/E markets and submarkets. Join PSMJ’s David Burstein for this 30-minute podcast and learn:

  • More about what PSMJ’s most recent Quarterly Market Forecast tells us about proposal activity and backlog trends in various sectors and geographic regions in North America.
  • Why business in the A/E sector is brisk and why it will continue (at least for a while).
  • Why the housing market is the best early indicator of what will happen in most other A/E market sectors.
  • How to be part of the PSMJ’s Quarterly Market Forecast.
