US Overview: Advancing through Uncertainty

Tuesday, May 2, 2023
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM PDT
Beverly Hilton - International Ballroom

The future—and even the present—of the US economy is murkier than it has been since the COVID-19 pandemic started three years ago. After the steep acceleration of inflation and the Fed’s newfound determination to bring it down with aggressive monetary policy, many experts waited for the customary other shoe to drop: recession. Yet so far, with unemployment still low and wage growth still healthy, the effect of higher interest rates has not led to a slowdown in the US economy. With innovation in business and technology still strong and "animal spirits" mainly intact, can the US economy skirt the risk of recession and emerge in a stronger expansion? What roles can both private and public sectors enact to hasten this outcome? And with healthy labor markets, are we on the threshold of a new phase of extending prosperity—and the American dream—to ever more US citizens? A panel of high-level experts will share their insights.
