The latest edition of this quarterly report provides comprehensive analysis of the US economy for this year and beyond, assessing the key issues that will shape macro and market outcomes, including:

  • How inflation will fall faster than the Fed expects, albeit because of a mild recession in early 2023;
  • Why residential investment will bear the brunt of the recession, while consumption and business investment will be relatively cushioned;
  • How falling inflation will create the conditions for the Fed to start cutting rates by the end of next year.
