The Conference Board Economics Watch® United States View

U.S. steps up while Europe slips

  • Recent U.S. economic measures perform above expectations
  • Steady 2.5%+ economic growth in U.S. is unlikely
  • More likely, U.S. growth remains volatile and sluggish until at least the middle of next year
  • A deep recession in Europe would create significant additional risk for the United States through trade, investment, and financial channels
  • A European sovereign or bank default provokes a worst-case scenario
