‘Recession Fears in an Election Year’ – Gregory Daco, Chief U.S. Economist, Oxford Economics

PLEASE NOTE EVENT DATE CHANGE! Originally planned for Thursday, January 23rd, this event is now scheduled for TUESDAY, JANUARY 21st.

Recession fears have resurfaced. The combination of weaker global growth, rising trade tensions, lingering policy uncertainty and subdued corporate profitability will continue to act as a powerful brake on business investment in coming quarters, while Fed easing and domestic demand should support momentum. Looking into 2020, should we price in a recession ahead of the presidential elections, or will broadly supportive economic fundamentals remain supportive of this expansion?

Gregory Daco is Chief US Economist at Oxford Economics where he is responsible for producing the US economic outlook using Oxford Economics’ proprietary Global Economic Model. Greg directs thematic research on the economy, the Fed and fiscal policy, and leads a team of high caliber economists producing intraday economic and financial market analysis. He conducts regular briefings on the global economy for corporate boards, trade associations and policymakers at all levels. Greg is often quoted in national and global publications and is a frequent guest of CNBC, Bloomberg and NPR.

Prior to joining Oxford Economics, Greg was Director of US Macroeconomics at IHS Global Insight. He also worked in the Economic Affairs Department of the Belgian Embassy in Australia and the Permanent Representation of Belgium to the UN in Geneva. Greg is a Member of the Board of Directors of the National Association for Business Economics (NABE), former President of the New York Chapter of NABE as well as co-founder and former President of the Boston Chapter of the NABE. He holds a Master of Arts in economics from Boston University, and a Master in Business Administration from Université de Louvain in Belgium.
