Economics. Explained.

On vacation this week.

Hi all,

I decided to take a break this week and head up north to see my daughter.

Don’t let any stupid economic or market stuff happen while I am gone.

Several Things to Read This Week

December 18, 2015

Good afternoon everyone.

Several things for you to read this week.   First is the “Year Ahead – 2016” which is a somewhat longer piece than usual which provides the general framework for GDP growth, inflation, and the Fed next year.

Second, take a look at “GDP Forecasts” for the specific forecasts for next year.

Finally, there is a piece called “At Last” which talks about the Fed rate hike and the timing of the additional rate hikes which will be forthcoming next year.

2015 Economic Outlook Conference

This event is now sold out.

In times of uncertainty whether you are running a business or planning your investments, knowledge can be your most valuable asset.

You are invited to join us for our fourth annual economic outlook conference.  For the first time in eight years the Federal Reserve will begin to push interest rates higher.  How quickly will rates climb?  What impact will they have?  ?  When might the economy slip into recession?  When will wages begin to rise?  What is the outlook for inflation?  What are the risks surrounding that forecast?   Our keynote speaker will provide clear and concise answers to these questions.

Last year’s event was a sellout.  Be sure to book early and consider buying a table of 8 for your firm.

The Keynote Speaker will be Stephen Slifer — Owner and Chief Economist at NumberNomics, LLC
