Welcome to the Economic Outlook Series
As we’re facing many new and escalating challenges on the global economic front, particularly from the COVID-19 (coronavirus), it is essential first to recognize the impact that this health crisis is having on lives around the world.
Prevedere’s latest U.S. economic outlook focuses on rising COVID-19 cases and how revised reopening plans impact the consumer psyche and the overall economy.
In his latest economic report, Mr. Andrew Duguay, Prevedere’s Chief Economist, predicts more economic volatility and disruption for the summer months. He discusses the emergence of “micro-recessions” as economic indicators are not consistent across industries.
Mr. Duguay also shares critical lessons from the COVID-19 recession in the 1st half of the year so businesses can better plan for 2H-20 and beyond.
