Post-election briefing: the new Administration and the US economy

Published on: Nov 30, 2016

Deloitte Global Chief Economist, Ira Kalish and Deloitte UK Chief Economist, Ian Stewart, presents this post US election webinar to assess the policies of the new Administration and what they mean for the US economy.

The election takes place against the backdrop of a continued, unspectacular US recovery. The fact that this year German and UK GDP growth is likely to outpace America’s says it all. But, contrary to what one might think from the tone of the election campaign, the recovery is filtering through to “Main Street”. Job creation is strong and consumer confidence is not far off levels last seen before the financial crisis nine years ago. Real incomes are, once again, rising, and rising fastest for those at the bottom of the earnings scale. Agreed, America’s growth rate is still way below its trend rate, but it’s strong enough to keep financial markets speculating about an early rise in US interest rates.
