Future Economic Scenarios

John Hoehn;Mitchell Horrie, Mark Dunning
Economic scenarios for the upper Great Lakes region for the next 40 years were developed for adaptive management purposes. These scenarios are not forecasts, but rather projections of long-term trends and shocks recorded from past economic expansion and contraction. Trends are regular patterns of growth that continue over a given time period. A shock is a deviation from annual trend growth. Shocks occur for a variety of reasons. Contractions and recessions are negative shocks. Expansions, booms, and bubbles are positive shocks. The future is certain to bring surprises, including economic change. The purpose of this analysis was therefore to outline a range of likely economic surprises in order to develop plans that are robust to economic change and variability.
