Economic Indicators & Forecasting Topics
The Conference Board Economics Watch® United States View

  • Momentum for short-term activity has broadly improved and the mix of economic growth drivers is better in 2011
  • The labor market remains unable to match the recovery momentum of the broader economy and is the main headwind restraining the economy
  • The recent slide in home prices suggests the housing market may be in the midst of a double dip, another headwind for the U.S. economy
  • Special topic: As the official retirement age increases and workers delay individual retirement decisions, the average age of the workforce is rising
  • Firms need to prepare for differential effects from delayed retirement across regions, industries, and occupations
