, Beacon Economics and the Graziadio School of Business and Management at Pepperdine University invite you to join us at What's Next LA? Entrepreneurialism and California's Competitive Future. This year's event delivers a stellar line-up of leading economic and business thinkers including the following:

  • Christopher Thornberg, Founding Partner, Beacon Economics
  • Brad Kemp, Director of Regional Research, Beacon Economics
  • Linda Livingstone (emcee), Dean, Pepperdine University Graziadio School of Business and Management
  • Randy Churchill, Director - Emerging Company Services, PriceWaterhouseCoopers
  • Christos Costakos, Former Chairman & CEO, E*Trade Group, Inc.
  • Alexander Haislip, Financial Journalist and Author
  • Scott Lenet, Managing Director - Los Angeles, DFJ Frontier
Attendees will hear a new outlook for the U.S., California, and Los Angeles economies, delivered by some of the state's most reputable forecasters, and revealing insights into the direction the economy will take in the near and long-term future. Some questions addressed will include the following:
  • Is California going to stumble or stride down the road toward economic recovery in 2011 and 2012?
  • How high do oil prices have to rise to significantly affect the economy?
  • How will the housing market's battle with distressed properties affect home sales and prices in California and the nation over the next few years?
  • Inflation? Hyperinflation? Deflation? Why are experts all over the map?
  • Are the conditions for business success still in place in California today?
  • What are the greatest barriers to California’s existing businesses? To entrepreneurialism?
The program will also cover one of the most pressing and hotly debated topics in the state: entrepreneurialism and California's competitive future. Charges of a hostile business climate in the Golden State have exploded in intensity since the downturn began in 2007. We have invited an exceptional line-up of experts from the worlds of venture capital, technology start-ups, banking, and journalism to debate critical questions that go to the heart of California's future success.

Conference attendees will receive the following:
  • 2011 Los Angeles Economic Forecast Book - a data-packed analysis of the region's economic indicators
  • Sections on residential and commercial real estate authored by MetroIntelligence Principal Patrick Duffy
  • Quarterly updates to the forecast for one full year
  • Chance to interact with forecasters and speakers
  • Prime networking opportunity
  • Breakfast buffet
  • Hosted self-parking
