Welcome to the Economic Outlook Series
As we’re facing many new and escalating challenges on the global economic front, particularly from 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 report highlights government stimulus, jobless claims, and economic recovery.
The stakes are high for U.S. leaders to pass a new stimulus package as jobless claims rise while supplemental unemployment benefits are expiring.
In this report, Mr. Andrew Duguay, Prevedere’s Chief Economist, discusses extending benefits for extenuating circumstances. The first increase in jobless claims since the peak earlier this year is indicative of new cases, and as a result, some states rolling back reopening plans. Mr. Duguay breaks down stimulus ramifications on micro-recessions and recoveries.
Mr. Duguay also explains agile planning in the era of what he’s deemed, The Greater Recession. COVID-19 illuminated the need to account for risks and opportunities outside a company’s four walls. External data elevates business intelligence initiatives and strengthens organization planning and continuity.
