When trying to figure out the economic future of the country in 2023 it is best to leave it to the experts, which is why Hayward Rotary will hear a presentation on the "U.S. Economic Outlook for the New Year," at its meeting at noon, Monday, Jan. 9, at the Masonic Hall in downtown Hayward, 1074 B St.
 
The presenter will be Filippo Rebessi, an economist and interim chair of the Department of Business and Economics at Cal State East Bay. He received his doctorates from the University of Minnesota and Università degli Studi di Parma in Italy. 
 
Dr. Rebessi's presentation continues a long tradition of Hayward Rotarians hearing from Cal State East Bay economists every January. Dr. Rebessi's presentation is especially intriguing as the U.S. looks at an economy in 2023 that may include elements of inflation, monetary tightening, slowing consumer demand, modest job losses, a tight job market, and wage movement. 
 
Dr. Rebessi has been an assistant professor of economics at Cal State East Bay since 2016, and interim chair of the department since last August. Courses he has taught at CSUEB. include “Macroeconomics for Business,” “Global Economic Analysis,” and “Monetary Theory.”
