Understanding Today’s Macroeconomy

  December 2, 2019, 12:00 PM

  John Locke Foundation, 4800 Six Forks Rd, Suite 221, Raleigh, NC 27609

The economy is a complex system with ups and downs. This year, the American economy has seen all kinds of economic indicators hit dramatic highs and lows: from the DOW dropping more than 600 points in one day to unemployment hitting a 50-year low. Mixed signals from the economy and whispers of a potential recession from indicators like the yield curve can make even the most attuned economic spectator rightfully befuddled. Dr. Paul Cwik, Fellow of the Mises Institute and the BB&T Professor of Economics and Finance at the University of Mount Olive, will provide perspective on the current data and where in the business cycle we might be – including information on how to best interpret that data using Austrian Business Cycle Theory.
