State Chamber Update
The August member survey of the National Association of Business Economists (NABE) found that most now believe an economic recession “will occur later than anticipated when the February policy survey was conducted,” said NABE President, Constance Hunter, chief economist at KPMG. “Respondent attitudes towards current fiscal policy have shifted significantly as well,” continued Hunter. “The percentage of panelists who find current fiscal policy ‘too stimulative’ has declined from 71% in August 2018 to 51% in the current survey. Just over one-third consider fiscal policy ‘about right,’ and 8% find it ‘too restrictive.’” To review the survey, charts, graphs and analysis, click here.
