At the start of 2024 investors remain focused on the macro environment, comforted by falling inflation and a soft landing so far but concerned about geopolitical turmoil. On balance, our economic outlook for 2024 can be summarized by the number itself: 2% growth, 0 recessions, 2% inflation, and 4% unemployment, which represents a supportive backdrop for financial assets. In addition, the Fed has shifted to a more dovish stance, with rate cuts on the horizon this year. However, with an upcoming election it is more important than ever for investors to adopt a disciplined, rather than emotional, investing approach. Using slides from the Guide to the Markets, Dr. David Kelly will shine some light on these issues and their investment implications.
