Placer Valley 2022 - Beacon Economics Economic Forecast

Dr. Chris Thornberg, founding partner of Beacon Economics

“Not everything is an existential crisis. We need to stop pretending that we are constantly in crisis,” Thornberg said to Gold Country Media. “A lot of things are going really right, especially here in Placer County. There’s a lot of room for great advancements.”

Placer County participated in the Placer Valley 2022 event in October.  This event is the largest business summit in the region and brought together over 600 attendees representing business, workforce, and community leaders.   The overarching theme was to share ideas on how to keep Placer County on its upward trajectory as one of the best places in California to live, work, play and learn.  Placer County routinely ranks in the top three of all California counties for quality of life.

A founding partner of Beacon Economics, Dr. Chris Thornberg, was a keynote speaker at Placer Valley 2022, the region's largest business summit in Placer County.
