Topic: Macroeconomic Metric Forecasting

During this talk, Drs. Bill McKinnon and Tom Smith from Capitalytics will discuss the current issues that are driving and hampering the economic recovery as we re-emerge from the COVID pandemic.  Specifically, the discussion will focus on our forecasts for inflation rates, yields, jobs, and other trends (domestic and global) that are expected to influence investors in the coming months based on information from the Fed, US and global policy makers, and others.  We will also welcome questions on topics related to the macroeconomic discussion.
