The webcast will follow chief economists Jim Haughey, Ken Simonson and Kermit Baker as they discuss and analyze: Will the end of harsh winter weather reverse the recent decline in construction spending? Investors are again looking at commercial real estate lending.  How long before this restored access to capital results in higher construction starts? Will President Obama’s call to abolish Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac help or hurt housing in 2011? Will Congress approve President Obama’s request for more federal infrastructure spending? How much cost inflation will come with the construction spending recovery? The webcast will be broadcast live starting at 2 p.m. (EST).  Registration is complimentary for all participants; pre-registration is required. Moderators will accept questions during the presentation from the internet audience and the webcast will also be archived for later viewing.  Registrants may also receive 1.5 AIA CEU credits for attending this webcast.
