Economic outlook for Manufacturing

Dr. Chad Moutray,

Chief Economist, National Association of Manufacturers

Dr. Moutray will discuss the economic health of manufacturers, who have helped to boost overall growth in the recovery, and provide an economic outlook for the industry. As part of this discussion, he will focus on the sectors which are growing the strongest right now as well as economic and policy challenges that manufacturers are facing today.

Chad Moutray is chief economist for the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), where he serves as the NAM’s economic forecaster and spokesperson on economic issues. He frequently comments on current economic conditions for manufacturers through professional presentations and media interviews. He has appeared on Bloomberg, CNN, C-SPAN, Fox Business, Fox News, and Reuters television.

Prior to joining the NAM, Dr. Moutray was the chief economist and director of economic research for the Office of Advocacy at the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) from 2002 to 2010. In that role, he was responsible for researching the importance of entrepreneurship to the U.S. economy and highlighting various issues of importance to small business owners, policymakers and academics. In addition to discussing economic and policy trends, his personal research focused on the importance of educational attainment to both self-employment and economic growth.  Before working at the SBA, Dr. Moutray was the dean of the School of Business Administration at Robert Morris College in Chicago, Ill. (now Robert Morris University of Illinois).

Dr. Moutray is a former board member of the National Association for Business Economics (NABE). He is also the former president and chairman of the National Economists Club, the local NABE chapter for Washington, D.C. He holds a Ph.D. in economics from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale and bachelor’s and master’s degrees in economics from Eastern Illinois University. In 2007, he was named a distinguished alumnus by Lake Land College in Mattoon, Ill., where he earned his associate’s degree in business administration. In 2014, he will receive an Outstanding Alumni Award from Eastern Illinois University.
