US economic growth has gradually slowed over the last year but now appears to be holding up fairly well, especially when compared to other advanced economies. Following widespread fears about a looming recession, the future appears somewhat brighter. However, ample risks to US growth await us in 2020.

During our December program, our economists will review the major US economic trends in 2019, share their thoughts about what lies ahead in 2020, and explore some of the primary opportunities and threats to US growth on the horizon.

Join our experts to discover:

  • The key drivers of US economic growth in 2019 and what we expect to see in 2020;
  • Why the risk of a US recession is declining; and
  • The key threats to and opportunities for US growth in the near future.
