Thinking Outside the Boxe Releases 2014 Economic Outlook
January 21, 2014 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsMyrtle Beach, SC, Orlando, FL and Washington, D.C. January 21, 2014 - Thinking Outside the Boxe has released its 2014 economic outlook based on internal analysis and input from the think tank's various correspondents and attendees who participated in the 2013 annual symposium held in Orlando in late December. The highlights of the economic outlook follow:
Though economic growth showed some signs of modest strength in 2013, we believe the economy is likely to continue at a subdued pace in 2014. We expect continued subpar economic activity in the coming year coupled with persistent high unemployment and lack of job creation in the private sector. Additionally, we believe the risks are weighted towards rising inflationary pressures particularly in food. In all likelihood, upward pressure on long-term interest rates will mount in financial markets, despite continued accommodative monetary policy by the Federal Reserve. We believe there is a small but growing probability that that the economy will weaken in 2014, particularly in the latter half of the year.
Our assessment and expectations for the economy include the following:
Based on our assessment of the state of the economy in late 2013, conditions, while seeming to improve, are likely to remain largely uninspiring for economic activity for much of 2014.
