Our US economics coverage provides detailed analysis and independent forecasts for the US economy and financial markets, offering both rapid responses to new data and developments, and more in-depth coverage of key themes, current trends, and future developments.
We predominantly use Capital Economics to understand the main trends and forge opinions on markets, but also to conduct more in-depth analysis on specific economic and market topics.
