Join us for an economic update with Patrick J. Flaherty, Economist, at the Connecticut Department of Labor's Office of Research.

Job growth picked up at the end of 2014 and during the first half of 2015. The unemployment rate dropped and other measures of economic growth turned positive. Yet consumer sentiment remains negative with less than 25% of the population stating that business conditions are "good" at the beginning of the year. Is this economy doing better than it feels or is the pessimism justified?

Patrick will provide some lively insights into the challenges and opportunities facing the economy and labor markets in 2015 and looking ahead to 2016 and beyond.

Patrick J. Flaherty is an economist in the Connecticut Department of Labor's Office of Research where his responsibilities include occupational projections and long-term industry projections. He received his Bachelors Degree in Social Studies from Harvard University and his Masters Degree in Economics from the University of Connecticut where he is currently a Ph.D candidate with a concentration in labor economics. Patrick's research interests focus on displaced workers and human capital development. He has authored several manuscripts for the Office of Research, has given many talks and presentations to business and jobseeker groups, and is quoted frequently in the Connecticut media.
