The US economy is expanding, but the good times can’t last forever. ITR Economics has been calling for a business cycle peak to occur later this year, and key leading economic indicators are now providing evidence in support of this forecast. The recent tax reform package has been billed as a shot in the arm for economic growth, and clients often ask whether this boost could be sufficient to avert a slowdown. Unfortunately, in economics, the answer is rarely clear cut.

Please join us on Tuesday, May 22 at 2 p.m. EST for a webinar co-hosted by ITR Economics’ Lauren Saidel-Baker, CFA, and Balentine’s Adrian Cronje, Ph.D., CFA.

The webinar will include:

  • • Explanation of the goals of tax reform in a historical context
  • • Key ingredients needed for tax reform to be considered successful long term
  • • Forecasts for where the US economy is heading, supported by ITR’s 94.7% accuracy rating
  • • Identification of key economic trends
  • • Attention to various consumer and industrial sectors
  • • Anticipated economic trends to capitalize on growth and prepare for slowdowns



Additionally, attendees will learn about the tax reform package’s potential impact on markets and the economy and will come away with a view on just how long the good times can roll.
