U.S. Economic Outlook for 2023 Webinar
With inflation showing widespread signs of easing in recent months, optimism is rising that the economy might be able to achieve a soft landing. However, the inflation level is still elevated despite its recent retreat. In the backdrop of high inflation, December’s U.S. retail sales showed the biggest drop in a year, suggesting weakening consumer demand and softer growth in 2023.
To ensure inflation will return to its long-term target, the Fed indicates that it will likely continue to tighten rates in 2023. Higher borrowing costs will likely weigh on corporate profits and consumer spending.
