What Will Cause The Next Recession - Michelle Meyer On Elevated Risks

1169 ratings | 93468 views
Bank of America's Head of U.S. Economics Michelle Meyer predicts a slower economy in 2019 compared to last year. A slowing global economy, especially from China, is likely to have an impact on the United States. But despite the risks being higher, the economic data shows an imminent recession may not be in the cards. She also explains why wages have improved despite an aging population. "The labor market is tight," she says. And it's not just for high-skilled workers, but for lower income jobs as well.

What's disturbing and strange for me is that nothing really makes sense. I don't think individuals are doing well and many are debt ridden but the economy as a whole seems to be doing well (job market, stock market)...

Bank of America was bailed out by Public money - that is socialsim Corp socialism The Millenials are paid too little to be able to boost the economy with car and home purchases in fact they are struggling to pay student debt some for more than 10 years while they live in parents basement or their 10-year old beater. so since housing and auto stales are key parts of the economy this is very bad news. (GM closures make sense now) but this is only the tip of the iceburge - baby boomers are due to all retire during the next 12 years but how will that huge Old Age Security payments be funded > this is estimated to be a 70 Trillion dollar unfunded liability - so we are facing an increasing cost during declining revenue - and Trumps Tax cuts has accellerated this problem it will hit a wall of insustainabiility in less than 10 years - but Trump will be like 90 then and will not GAS

Sorry kid you are all wet - even with labour shortages US workers are not gaining on wage rates - they are losing, and dont pretent that income inequaltity in the world is anything like the US the GINI index of the UN shows the US wage inequaltiy is an order of magnitude higher than ANY other G20 country so don't lie to us,

She crying because her liberal leader Hillary Clinton lost - she really saying I'm going to talk down the economy so that a female socialist like Elizabeth Warren can win in 2020 - which all means Trump wins in a landslide in 2020 and the Dow goes to 30,000

After watching this millennial, "head of BofA's economics", I'm thinking it's time to pull my savings and go with another bank. While she was twirling at Boston at the age of 20, my family took out a loan with Countrywide. BofA's crown jewel. BofA's Countrywide was the, "lender" that fueled the great recession feeding their loans to Leaman Bros. This gal running her jaws about economics is similar to a tree sloth heckling slow horses at the track.

We are going to inflate everything forever we're going to inflate this is why the stock market knows it's going to go up or going to inflate real estate prices this is why all these corporations are buying all the real estate and rental prices have doubled they know it but this also means gold has to go up but it only goes up 4% you will only go up the rate of inflation Pension funds were like this because bonds and stock stabilize all stabilized because of regulated inflation butt inflation is inflation you're either way the purchasing power subtly quietly destroying purchasing power for those on fixed incomes welfare all those illegal aliens on EBT cards

Illiteracy, and persistent efforts of criminal partners of the U.S. Military to cover the history of their malicious practices will cause the recession. It has already begun, and you will have lost your land entirely before there will be any possibility of recovery.

You want to know why this recession is going to be bad, and what will cause it? Look at Quantitative Easing and asset market inflation (why CPI has stayed the same). Look at the debt corporations and individuals have and where on earth interest rates are going to go from here. And then look at Trump, where this will all be blamed.

My issue will be similar to the previous meltdown: housing. A recession for those who don't know is a period where the economy does not grow. The core problem will be young people unable to afford homeownership. This will be due to student loan debts, and will impact even people with decent-paying career jobs. A huge chunk of the nation's economy is dependent on homeownership with its products sold. New cars and trucks have gotten prohibitively expensive which will also hurt the auto industry. This in addition to the limited money that young people will be able to spend on consumer products will create a slowdown, and in turn, a shrinking of the economy for awhile. And that's just the US.

Everything. It’s called the everything bubble for a reason. The job market is irrelevant, tens in trillions of debt will eventually become unmanageable. It will collapse at some point, and with it, the dollar and the U.S. and global economy.

Why does she say the central bank’s policies which led to higher income inequality were “clearly unintended consequences?” Ummm they have enough smart people there to have been able to factor that in. Seems like it was designed that way. Not just an oopsie. They’re clearly not taking any steps to counteract their “mistakes” 😏

She is cute, but wrong, if you at the data months before each recession there is always a employment peak then a sudden drop off. We will see that soon if the trade war dont come to a good end.
Han Zhang (24 days ago)
Yeah, that's because recession happens after you get over production of goods and services there is no consumption for. And how do you get that? By excess labor. However, her point is that you cannot be in recession while it (labor participation rate) is rising, it can only happen after it has peaked and begins to decline. It cannot happen while it is still rising.

Titles like this are more of a click bait than any thing.anyways,economist after economist keep talking about economic cycles and the indicators etc.there r so many punters who come on business news channels and keep betting on a recession every year.this has been more common since 2015 and thanks to the internet it gets lot of clicks.the simplest way to look at a recession is when the 'clickers' are clueless and r hit by a tsunami otherwise its just a painful slowdown of economic adjustment to new realities with billionaires coming in and swooping the shares sold by millions of commoners.
