San Diego’s GDP this year is projected to be $218.6 billion, said Kelly Cunningham, an economist and senior fellow at the institute. Last year, it was estimated to be $208.2 billion. While that works out to a 5 percent increase, when adjusted for inflation, the local economy will see only 3 percent of real growth.
Cunningham said a diversified mix of high-technology businesses will lead the economic improvement.
