San Diego is likely to continue to slightly trail all of California and essentially match the rest of the nation in economic growth,” says Kelly Cunningham, Senior fellow and chief economist for the National University System Institute for Policy Research. “In our forecast for San Diego, the region excels in some sectors, such as high-value R&D technology businesses, but lags in other areas of real estate and business services. Military spending cutbacks have also slowed the region’s economic outlook.”

The forecast of San Diego’s economy is driven in part by the uncertainty of national global economics. Multiple indicators suggest the U.S. will not shake off the lethargy of the past six years, and indeed is likely to further slow in 2016. Although not necessarily seeing negative growth or recession nationally (just yet), Americans will continue to experience sluggish economic conditions. At this point of six going on seven years of post-recession timeline, economic cycles tend to slow, not accelerate.
