Recession Watch: Disjointed signals add complexity to economic forecasts
August Economic Outlook
The news that GDP shrank in the first two quarters of 2022 was quickly followed by an unexpected strong increase in the Labor Departments’ jobs report. And while supply chain tensions have eased, inflation continues to soar. The concurrence of these positive and negative indicators is simply unprecedented, leaving many business leaders searching for answers about how to plan for the rest of 2022 and beyond.
While these disjointed economic signals add significant complexity to economic forecasting, one thing remains clear: the likelihood of a weakened economy going into 2023.
