Weekly Economic Briefings - Us Weekly Economic Briefing

Data this week points to an economy at crossroads. Income and job gains are slowing, confidence remains muted, especially for low-income families, and evidence of more permanent labor market scarring is visible. As such, this is a make-or-break moment for policymakers: a stimulus package would provide the economy with impetus as it rounds the final quarter of Q4, but failure to enact another stimulus package raises the risk of a double-dip downturn. President Trump’s Covid-19 diagnosis adds another layer of uncertainty.
