      The Economic Vibe Check

      Just because the U.S. economy has averted a long-talked about recession and the stock market is hovering around records, it doesn’t mean all is fine and well. Interest rates are much higher thanks to inflation-fighting actions from the Federal Reserve, serving to dampen economic growth. Inflation remains high despite those efforts, putting the squeeze on household finances. The return of student loan payments is weighing on consumer spending. Talking to top CEOs and experts, this panel will go inside the state of the U.S. economy at its current crossroad and help shed light on where things could be headed in 2024.
