SEATTLE, WA, UNITED STATES, February 9, 2024 / — The Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties hosted economist, author, and futurist Jason Schenker this week for its Economic Forecast Breakfast.

Mr. Schenker’s talk drew extensively on his analysis and forecasting as the President of Prestige Economics. As Chairman of The Futurist Institute, he also included content about future trends in the economy, business, and demographics.

Gina Bourdage, Director of Events & Programs for the Master Builders Association of King & Snohomish Counties, lauded the presentation, sharing that “Jason Schenker’s ability to dissect complex economic data and trends, and then articulate them in a clear and engaging manner, left a lasting impression on our audience. His insights into global markets, macroeconomic indicators, and geopolitical factors were not only informative but also incredibly valuable for our attendees, offering them a strategic advantage in navigating the economic landscape. Jason’s expertise, professionalism, and engaging presentation style make him an invaluable asset for anyone seeking insights into the future of the global economy, especially those within the building industry. I highly recommend him as a speaker for any event focused on economic forecasting.”

Topics of Mr. Schenker’s talk included a discussion of the economic outlook for the U.S. economy, the international economy, Washington State, and the Seattle region, including King and Snohomish counties. He discussed a wide array of topics, including current and future trends in the labor market, the importance of jobs for economic growth, inflation, interest rates, housing risks and opportunities, building materials costs, a non-partisan view of the upcoming 2024 U.S. elections, financial market trends, commercial real estate risks, supply chain risks, Cold War Two®, and other topics.

Jerry Hall, the Executive Director of the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties, shared “We’ll need a bigger venue next time. Jason Schenker served as keynote speaker for our annual Economic Forecast Breakfast of the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties, the oldest and largest homebuilding association in the country. Overflowing with fact-based data, Jason’s information seemed inarguable. Possibly even more impressive, as I looked around, there was neither a cell phone nor yawn in sight; the sold-out audience was riveted by Jason’s presentation.”

Remarking on his speech to the group, Jason Schenker shared “It was a real pleasure to be able to share my perspectives, forecasts, and actionable insights on the economy, housing, construction, and more with the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties. The MBAKS is a tremendous group of leaders.”
