About This Event

While COVID-19’s public health toll continues, the pandemic lockdowns and stimulus programs of 2021 have generated a number of economic effects in the United States. Record inflation, drastic price fluctuations, container ship logjams, and “the great resignation” are signs of the global economy finding a new equilibrium. Faced with these potential threats to growth, what is the outlook for the US economy in 2022? Goldman Sachs’ chief economist Jan Hatzius and the Financial Times' US economics editor Colby Smith join the Council to highlight trends that businesses and consumers should watch for in the months ahead.
