The Anderson Forecast, offering respected analyses of key issues by experts from UCLA's Anderson School of Management, presented its latest quarterly outlook on April 2. Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa presented the keynote address.
Panelists addressed issues in two key areas:
I. Work and Play in L.A. Education, Wages, Community, the Middle Class, Poverty, Quality of Life - What we need to do to ensure that Angelenos participate and prosper in the city/regional workforce.
II. Getting to Work and Play in L.A. Land Use, Transportation, Zoning, Affordable Housing, Smart Growth, Congestion. How can we have a strong economy and healthy neighborhoods that help "raise all boats"?
Attendees at the conference received a copy of the Anderson Forecast's "Solutions for Our City," a book comprised of essays solicited from distinguished Angelenos. All of these essays are posted on the Forecast's website. "This posting will be a living, evolving document, with new solutions posted periodically and with room for discussion of the solutions proposed," said Ed Leamer, director of the Forecast. "If you have a great idea, or a half-baked idea, please make a visit and post it there. It could make a difference."
