Good news is in the forecast. Economist Alan Beaulieu predicts that the U.S. economy will recover, despite economic turbulence in the European Union, political unrest in the Middle East, rising fuel prices, and pre-election jitters at home. A well-known trend analyst and president of the Institute for Trend Research, Beaulieu will ease attendees' uncertainty about the worldwide economy and set forth strategy and tactics for recovery in the keynote address at the 2012 Executive Conference of the Control System Integrators Association (CSIA), to be held April 25 to 28 in Scottsdale, Ariz.

“Escalating oil prices could indeed push consumers and businesses into a recession, but not this time,” says Beaulieu. “Should the worst case scenario happen and Iran stop the flow of oil exports, other regions are likely to increase supply. Oil prices will go up, but probably not to the point of bringing on a recession either here or in Europe.”

The CSIA conference will bring together more than 400 control system integrators and vendors from the U.S., Canada, Latin America, and abroad. For program details and registration information, visit controlsys.org.
