Prevedere’s latest U.S. economic outlook focuses on recent data, such as the sharp rebound of May retail sales numbers, the rising number of COVID-19 cases, and how they contribute to overall economic recovery.
In his latest economic report, Mr. Andrew Duguay, Prevedere’s Chief Economist, reviews recovery on the horizon, it will not be fast or easy. He examines how an increase in new coronavirus cases could lead to complex business decisions and provides context to what positive numbers economic signals, such as retail sales, indicates for the months ahead.
