Two Treasure Valley economists will discuss the economic outlook and problems with the government’s economic policies at a dinner Thursday in Boise.

Brian McGrath and Dwayne Barney will speak at the annual Forecast Dinner of the Chartered Financial Analyst Society of Idaho.

The dinner will be held from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Arid Club.
