In the media: "Report: Sacramento's economy will continue to improve," Sacramento Business Journal
The Sacramento region’s economy is improving at a modest yet steady pace. That’s just one of many findings in the midyear update of Sacramento Business Review.
The report is published by Sacramento State’s College of Business Administration and the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Society of Sacramento. It is available at www.sacramentobusinessreview.com.
“Sacramento Business Review is the only local publication focusing on the economy and financial strength of the Sacramento region and how it is affected by national and international trends,” says Sanjay Varshney, dean of the College of Business Administration.
The midyear report includes an economic overview, as well as analyses of the real estate, banking and small business sectors, and capital markets.
“The region continues to face challenges with unemployment higher than the national average, banks struggling with loan demand to increase their top-line revenue and small businesses facing difficult choices in the face of the fiscal cliff and Affordable Care Act implications. Overall, 2014 promises to bring better news and a stronger economy,” Varshney says. “While jobs growth remains weak, the unemployment rate for the region has dropped sharply and should be helped further by improving home values.”
A team of financial analysts and researchers contributes to Sacramento Business Review, which is published twice a year. For media assistance, call Sacramento State’s Public Affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
