New California San Joaquin Valley Business Forecast Finds COVID-19 Virus Control Key to Economic Recovery

2021 business forecast volume 10 issue 2 965x413

May 17, 2021 – The national economic recovery from the pandemic is continuing at a slower pace, due to emerging variants of the COVID-19 virus and a reluctance among some populations to seek vaccination. Reaching vaccination goals in late spring will speed up the rate of economic recovery in the second half of 2021, but complete recovery in the San Joaquin Valley — as measured by the region’s full employment levels — is not expected to take place until the end of 2023.

Missouri Basin River Forecast Center: Three Quarters of a Century Providing River Forecasting Services | Business

On October 1, 2021, the National Weather Service’s Missouri Basin River Forecast Center will celebrate its 75th birthday.  For three quarters of a century, the people working at the Missouri Basin River Forecast Center (MBRFC) have provided river forecasts for the protection of life and property in the north central United States.

How the world stays open for business

For generations after the second world war, it was a safe assumption that globalisation would continue unabated. The opening of economies, technological advances, cultural exchange and political engagement ushered in one of the most expansive periods of global interconnectedness in history. Despite recent gloomy warnings, there is scant evidence that this trend will reverse.

Data from the DHL Global Connectedness Index (GCI), produced by NYU Stern’s DHL Initiative on Globalization, indicate that the movement of goods, services, capital, information and people across borders has grown steadily since the 1940s and by more than a quarter this century.

Given the disruption of the coronavirus pandemic and rising nationalist and populist movements around the world, many have opined about the imminent rise of autarky and the end of globalisation as we know it.

But we have yet to see a turning point. Despite a slowdown after the 2008-09 financial crisis and
