Reopening OC: Challenges and Opportunities

With the vaccine rollout underway, various plans are being made to allow local small businesses to reopen and engage again with the public.

Come hear Tim Duy, Economics Professor at U of O, and a member of the Governor’s Advisory Board on Economic Development, speak on what to expect with this new economy and what future trends for job creation will look like.

Tim’s presentation is topical, informative and a great source of statistics and projections on how to plan for 2021.

Professor Duy received his B.A. in Economics in 1991 from the University of Puget Sound, and his M.S. and Ph.D. in Economics in 1998 from the University of Oregon.
Following graduate school, Tim worked in Washington, D.C. for the United States Department of Treasury as an economist in the International Affairs division and later with the G7 Group, a political and economic consultancy for clients in the financial industry. In the latter position, he was responsible for monitoring the activities of the Federal Reserve and currency markets.

Tim returned to the University of Oregon in 2002. He is the Senior Director of the Oregon Economic Forum and the author of the University of Oregon Statewide Economic Indicators, Regional Economic Indicators, and the Central Oregon Business Index.

Tim has published in the Journal of Economics and Business and is currently a member of the Oregon Governor’s Council of Economic Advisors and the State Debt Policy Advisory Commission.
