Bloomberg Presents:  Strengths & Weaknesses of the US Economy

Bloomberg Presents: Strengths & Weaknesses of the US Economy

Wednesday, July 25, 2018
9:00am - 10:00am
Reading Room (HCHB Room 1894)


Join Bloomberg’s Chief US Economist, Carl Riccadonna, for a discussion on the US Economy. Our speaker will discuss:


- What do "trade wars" mean for the US Economy?

- This cycle has a long way to run... The US may be past the 9 year mark, but the economy is still displaying "mid-cycle" characteristics.

- Is there a "productivity mystery" in the current cycle, or does an upturn loom in the not-too-distant future?

- Given the flatness of the Phillips Curve, the US is far away from an inflation overshoot. Should the Fed remain on a gradual path?

Carl Riccadonna is the Chief U.S. economist at Bloomberg LP, where he analyzes macroeconomic developments in order to better understand the implications for the broader economy and monetary policy. As head of the team of US economists, Mr. Riccadonna contributes in-depth analysis of macroeconomic data and trends for the Bloomberg Professional service, the world's most trusted source for real-time and historical financial data, news, research and analytics.
