Wealthion, Released on 5/24/23

There is no shortage of opinions out there about where the economy is headed right now. You’ll find equally vocal advocates for a hard landing vs a soft landing. And a growing number saying there will be “no landing at all” and a new bull market lies ahead. When there are so many voices at odds with one another, it’s useful to look closely at the data and take measure of what simply “is”. What are the economic conditions, right now, telling us? To do just that, we welcome Wolf Richter back to the program for a deep look at growth, interest rates, inflation, liquidity, employment and other key indicators.
