Join The Demand Institute®, a not-for-profit think tank jointly operated by The Conference Board and Nielsen, and The Federal Reserve Bank of New York for a special webcast on the US consumer.

We will discuss the latest findings from The Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s Survey of Consumer Expectations, featuring Americans’ views on inflation, job prospects, and earnings growth and their expectations about future spending and access to credit. We will also review the latest results from The Conference Board Consumer Confidence Survey®. The discussion will include a more detailed breakdown of confidence at the regional and state levels. Finally, we will describe the potential implications for business leaders and policy makers.

Key Issues:

  • How confident are consumers? What are their expectations regarding the economic outlook in the short-term?
  • What are recent trends in consumers’ future spending, labor market and access to credit expectations?
  • What do these trends mean for consumer demand in the U.S.?
  • What are the important considerations for business leaders and policy makers to successfully navigate through the opportunities and challenges presented by shifts in consumer expectations?
