Is the Fear Of Missing Out Transitioning into the Fear of Going Out?

From stay-at-home orders and quarantines to record unemployment and business closures, the coronavirus pandemic has changed our world over the past few months. Of course, everyone is wondering what the economic impact will be from Covid-19, and in many cases, economists and researchers are called upon by policymakers, media, and government agencies to answer that question.

Join us on Thursday, June 4th at 3 p.m. EST for the AUBER roundtable on the U.S. economic outlook featuring Rajeev Dhawan, Zwerner Chair of Economic Forecasting and director of the Economic Forecasting Center at the J. Mack Robinson College of Business at Georgia State University.  Dhawan will address a few of the issues below, and then we’ll have time for a Q&A session.

  1. Can the Fall travel season be saved?
  2. Will deflation be followed by inflation or vice versa?
  3. Is the 10-year bond rate heading for 2.0%? When?
  4. What do the above 3 questions mean for the shape of the recovery?

When: Thursday, June 4th at 3 p.m. EST
