The Storm Before the Calm? Waiting for Normalcy in the Outlook for 2024 and Beyond.

A lively discussion of the economic, financial, and industry outlook for 2024 and beyond, including my 4 main expectations for 2024 - • Slowing growth. • Slowing job gains. • Slowly easing inflation. • Political hijinks. There's plenty of good news - Lots of jobs and a strong U.S. labor market, growth in the economy has been solid, inflation has eased, Fed policy rates are near their peak, and consumer debt delinquencies are low. But there's also some bad news - Global growth is slowing, corporate profits are under pressure, commercial real estate is at risk, and Cold War Two is ongoing. I also discussed coming sustainability regulation and their potential impacts.

Robots Win and People Lose with More Government Debt
