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 the U.S. jobs report for May 2020, and what the jump in job recovery means for recovery.
In his latest economic discussion, Mr. Andrew Duguay, Prevedere’s Chief Economist, breaks down the U.S. unemployment numbers as released by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics on Friday, June 5, 2020 when jobs grew by 2.5 million in May.
While the unexpected growth rate is positive news for the U.S. economy, there are some uncertainties around data and how continued job growth expectations will trend.
Mr. Duguay illustrates how wider deviations and statistical inconsistencies in data can hinder business planning, and how context is key for companies in uncertain times such as these. Listen in as he peels back the jobs report and what he expects in terms of economic recovery.
