The State of the Economy for April 2024

Find out how reduced spending on big-ticket items, ongoing tensions in the Middle East, and bird flu are affecting the global economy.

For the third straight month, the Consumer Confidence Index® has fallen, but while consumers mention the ongoing headache of elevated food and energy prices, they’re not expecting a recession. Can the US meet its projected GDP growth for the year in an uncertain economic and geopolitical environment?

 

Join Senior Economist Erin McLaughlin and guest Dana Peterson, Chief Economist and Leader of the Economy, Strategy & Finance Center, to find out how reduced spending on big-ticket items, ongoing tensions in the Middle East, and bird flu are affecting the global economy.
