U.S. Economic Update: Latest Outlook

Consumer Spending and Recession Recovery

Examination and findings on economic leading indicators

Welcome to the Economic Outlook Series

In our latest economic update report, Andrew Duguay, Prevedere Chief Economist, details mixed signals on consumer spending. While total retail sales may paint a positive picture, they aren’t “total” when it comes to the complete image of consumer spending.

In this report, Andrew compares total retail sales data to total personal consumption expenditures to uncover the true, current state of consumer spending. He further breaks the data down to identify the COVID effect on goods and services specifically and compares it to recessions past.

Also in this report is a special feature: Scenario Planning 101 for 2021. Andrew shares the advice we give our customers when it comes to data and planning for 2021.

Does history repeat itself when it comes to consumer spending during a recession? Find out in our latest economic update report that includes expert advice to fuel your plans for next year.
