Key Perspectives, Economic Outlook
We are finally preparing to move beyond the pandemic and some of the other issues that have made 2020 such a difficult year. Barring another major lockdown, the economy seems primed to continue its recovery. The question is how fast it will grow and how soon we resolve some of the issues holding it back?
- Financially, consumers as a whole seem ready to spend.
- Economic implications of the virus and changing government policies have shaped the outlook of businesses.
- Growth both here and overseas should tend to be somewhat faster than normal as economies catch up to their longer-term growth trends.
