National Economists Club Luncheon ‘Recession Fears In An Election Year’
Gregory Daco is Chief US Economist, Oxford Economics where he is responsible for producing the US economic outlook using Oxford Economics’ proprietary Global Economic Model. Wharton Club Members & Guests invited.
- Recession fears have resurfaced. The combination of weaker global growth, rising trade tensions, lingering policy uncertainty and subdued corporate profitability will continue to act as a powerful brake on business investment in coming quarters, while Fed easing and domestic demand should support momentum. Looking into 2020, should we price in a recession ahead of the presidential elections, or will broadly supportive economic fundamentals remain supportive of this expansion?
