July Breakfast

Presented by:



the Portland economy in 2017

Presenter: Christian Kaylor, Economist, State of Oregon


Portland has outperformed the United States economically across a range of economic metrics: job creation, income growth, and home equity. At the same time, a closer look at the data shows the region has fallen behind in sharing that prosperity across the region. We’ll examine the drivers behind Portland’s spectacular growth and growing income inequality with an eye toward what Portland’s unique economic structure may mean for the future.


Participant Objectives:


  • Understand how Portland compares to other communities around the US for economic growth.
  • Understand the primary drivers behind Portland’s economic growth.
  • Understand the factors behind Portland’s growing income inequality
