NMSU to host 2020 Economic Outlook Conference February 13

National and state economists will gather in Las Cruces Thursday, February 13, to present their economic forecasts for 2020 during New Mexico State University’s ninth annual Economic Outlook Conference, hosted by the College of Business and Wells Fargo & Company.

The conference – free and open to the public – will take place from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at the Las Cruces Convention Center, 680 E. University Ave. A reception will start at 9:30 a.m.

This year’s speakers include Charles Dougherty, vice president and economist at Wells Fargo Securities, and NMSU Regents professor emeritus Jim Peach, who served as a faculty member in the Department of Economics, Applied Statistics and International Business from 1980 to 2018.

Dougherty, who joined Wells Fargo in 2017, covers the commercial real estate, housing and construction sectors of the United States’ regional and macro economy. He regularly writes indicator reports, produces special commentary and contributes to Well Fargo’s Weekly Economic & Financial Commentary report.

Before joining Wells Fargo, Dougherty worked as a regional economist and consultant for IHS Markit and CertainTeed, one of the largest building product manufacturers in North America. He holds bachelor’s degrees in economics and finance from the University of Pittsburgh and a master’s degree in economics from Temple University in Philadelphia.

Peach recently published two articles on Major League Baseball, as well as a book on the New Mexico economy and an article on the process of economic development. In addition to receiving numerous awards for teaching, research and service, Peach has served as president of four different academic organizations.

Peach earned a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Texas at Austin. His research interests include economic policy, energy, economic development, income distribution, demography and the economics of sports.

The deadline to register for this year’s conference is Monday, Feb. 10. To register, visit this website, or call Anthony Casaus at 575-646-5817.
