Economic Prospects for the U.S. and Regional Economy in 2017-2018
About This Meeting
In the early months of 2017, the U.S. economic outlook looks promising. Of course, much of where the economy is headed depends on the policies of the Trump administration and a Republican-controlled Congress. Likely enactment of corporate and personal income tax cuts including a repatriation tax cut on foreign held earnings, less regulation including replacing Obamacare, and higher infrastructure and defense spending would stimulate faster economic growth. But trade protection policies such as tariffs and quota would retard economic growth.
Stuart Hoffman will share his insights on Trump policy impacts and he will forecast important indicators such as U.S. energy production, unemployment and interest rates, the stock market and consumer spending
