Efforts to contain the COVID-19 outbreak decimated parts of what was a relatively stable U.S. economy. While the impact was expected to be temporary, the containment measures appear to have created longer-lasting challenges. Additionally, there remains a significant amount of uncertainty about the future related to the virus.
Vining Sparks’ third-quarter Economic Outlook webinar, will discuss some of the foundational economic challenges and how they are likely to weigh on the pace of recovery.
Webinar attendees will learn:
• How the economy has been affected by COVID-19 and how policymakers have responded.
• How the COVID-19 outbreak is expected to affect future economic outcomes, with a focus on the consumer impact.
• About a framework for future interest rate projections.
The one-hour webinar is presented by Craig Dismuke, executive vice president, and chief economist for Vining Sparks. Craig is responsible for the projection and publication of Vining Sparks’ economic and interest rate forecasts. He publishes research articles for Vining Sparks as well as other national publications. He speaks often at industry conferences on the health of the U.S. economy and expectations for interest rates. He is a frequent guest on CNBC, Fox Business, and Bloomberg TV as well as being quoted often in the financial news.
