EH Update: Current Economic Events​   

  • Much recent U.S. economic data have been negative, but there are signs of life in some areas, including manufacturing.
  • We predict that insolvencies will increase by 2% worldwide in 2016, and again by 2% in 2017. It will be the first rise since 2009.
  • Subdued trade and investment flows, segregated liquidity, low oil and commodity prices as well as hesitant and uncoordinated public policies continue to contribute to diappointing growth world-wide.
