About the Oregon Economic Forum
The Oregon Economic Forum is a series of initiatives presented by the UO College of Arts and Sciences and its Department of Economics. With the state continuing to face significant economic challenges, the Oregon Economic Forum adds a new voice to the ongoing political and business economic dialogue and affords business, finance, government, and university leaders the opportunity to explore relevant economic issues together.
