Beacon Economics to present at Orange County BIA's "Outlook 2009" in January

After many years of hosting Chapman University to offer their prognosis of past and present economic and housing trends, the Orange County chapter of the BIA is handing the reins for the next two years over to L.A.-based Beacon Economics, of which MetroIntelligence is a division.

The program, scheduled for the evening of January 26, 2009 at the Irvine Marriott, will feature economists Christopher Thornberg and Brad Kemp, who have recently been on a big media roll lately due to their calling the current recession and the housing bust well before it was official.

I'm told the reason that Beacon was selected for presenting in 2009 and 2010 is their accuracy in predicting what the future looks like in terms of unemployment, housing prices and sales.

I will also be there at the event to introduce Beacon and explain why now, more than ever, the building industry should turn to them for advice on not just regional economics, but portfolio assessments, site-specific market studies and, eventually, opportunity analyses for the market rebound.

In order to avoid a repeat of this terrible housing bust, I think it's time to start listening to those who willing to tell you the truth. After all, you can't address what you don't admit!
