Happy Returns

2015 Grand Reunion festivities—and the annual economics forecast with Mario Belotti

More than 3,500 alumni returned for Grand Reunion and took part in more than 50 events the weekend of Oct. 8–11. Highlights included the Friday-night Block Party and all the individual class reunion parties. One special tradition: economics professor Mario Belotti’s annual economic forecast. Professor Belotti, who is in his 57th year teaching at SCU—and recently published his autobiography, It Was All for the Love of a Horse—sees slower-than-average growth in 2016 with GDP up 2.7 to 2.8 percent. Dampening growth, he says, will be the increase in the value of the dollar, the likelihood of a small increase in interest rates, and a declining world economy.
