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, including information on how to best interpret that data using Austrian Business Cycle Theory.
