The 50th annual UCLA Anderson Forecast will focus its upcoming quarterly economic conference on California’s energy crisis, specifically addressing the effects that deregulation will have on the state. The June forecast, “Can California Grow in the Dark? Part 2,” will include a keynote address by former California Governor Pete Wilson, who will provide a rare presentation on the energy crisis. Wilson will discuss the origins of the state’s deregulation plan and what has gone wrong — and right. The three timely conference panels are:
¬∑ Energy Deregulation
¬∑ Management in the Economic Downturn
¬∑ The Economic Outlook for California and the Nation
¬∑ Pete Wilson, former governor of California
¬∑ Kathleen Connell, California State Controller
¬∑ Steve Baum, CEO, Sempra Energy
¬∑ Fred Furlong, vice president, Federal Reserve Board of San Francisco
¬∑ Peter Navarro, professor, Graduate School of Management, UC Irvine
¬∑ Edward Leamer, director, UCLA Anderson Forecast
