US Economic and Fiscal Outlook
Join me for our sector’s review of the long-term (30-year) economic and fiscal outlook of the US. Topics will include everything from GDP and labor force participation rates to federal deficits and the national debt. We will primarily be examining the recent projections from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). However, we will also consider alternate estimates provided by the Committee For a Responsible Budget (CRFB) and the Government Accountability Office (GAO).
Be forewarned: Over the next couple of decades, economic growth may face a low demographic ceiling—and fiscal headwinds could hit gale strength.
