Wednesday webinar at one: Why post-pandemic growth will be subdued

Wednesday 08 September 2021 | 13:00 - 13:40 | Webinar

The US economy has achieved a super high growth rate in the process of rebounding from the pandemic interruption. As a result, despite a new round of shutdowns, recovery in real GDP is nearly complete as the first quarter came to an end. From here on out, there are widespread expectations of a boom on the pretext of “pent-up demand: and further “stimulus”.

This webinar invites David Ranson, president and director of research at HCWE & Co, who will cover why this is much less feasible than it sounds. Classical economics implies, once recovery is complete, that growth will slow to the long-term norm. – but there are reasons to believe it will slip below that. 

Where recordings are made, these are a member benefit that are accessed through the member-only platform, CFA UK Discover.
