Elliot will speak on the condition of the overall economy with an emphasis on GDP growth, labor market conditions, wage growth, household wealth, inflation, Fed policy, interest rates, residential real estate prices, agricultural prices, and how the recently passed Republican tax reform and tax cuts are likely to impact the economy and our fiscal condition in 2019 and beyond. He will also compare economic conditions in Minnesota to those in the other 49 states and close by comparing, economic conditions among the largest four or five cities in Minnesota to each other.
