Managing Director Gary Horvath shares how the Economic Outlook Forum will address labor volatility.
Colorado’s economy will stabilize, but not grow, in 2010, economist Richard Wobbekind of the University of Colorado at Boulder’s Leeds School of Business tells The Denver Business Journal. The state will lose about 3,200 jobs in 2010, compared with the 100,000 jobs lost in 2009, Wobbekind forecasts. The university plans a Denver event at 1 p.m. at the Grand Hyatt Hotel.
