For the past 29 years, Old Dominion University economists have presented their annual Economic Forecast to community leaders at the beginning of each year. This year's forecast, delivered by Vinod Agarwal, professor and Economic Forecasting Project director, and Robert M. McNab, professor and director of the Dragas Center for Economic Analysis and Policy, predicted that the U.S. economy will grow for a third consecutive year, but consumers are still not convinced.
