The David Eccles School of Business is pleased to initiate The Economic Club of Utah – a forum to share research, data and analysis important to the success of the Utah economy. Like the economic clubs of Chicago, New York and Washington D.C., The Economic Club of Utah will bring together leading economists and business leaders and cultivate the next generation of economic and civic leadership. The Economic Club of Utah will be statewide and replace and expand what was previously known as the Wasatch Front Economic Forum.

Utah Economic Outlook

The primary goal of the report is to improve the reader’s understanding of the Utah economy. With improved economic literacy, decision makers in the public and private sectors will be able to plan, budget, and make policy decisions with an awareness of how their actions are both influenced by and impact economic activity.
