Seattle Looks to Have a Boring 2016

The coming year will be very similar to the previous one, and that’s a good thing. Economists from Russell investments, Zillow Group and Community Attributes Inc. spoke at the annual Economic Development Council of Seattle and King County’s Economic Forecast event on January 14 and predicted a continuation of the steady growth in the region experienced in 2015.

Seattle, said Community Attributes CEO Chris Mefford, should embrace the mediocrity. He projected the local economy will grow by 2.5% this year, which is what his from predicted last year. The Seattle economy grew by 3% last year.
