Bank of America And Business CEOs Are All Warning That Hard Times Are Coming This Year
By Investment Watch Blog
Some 70% of Americans admit to being stressed about their personal finances these days and a majority — 52% — of U.S. adults said their financial stress has increased since before the Covid-19 pandemic began in March 2020, according to a new CNBC Your Money Financial Confidence Survey conducted in partnership with Momentive.
Unfortunately, the truth is that the financial stress is just beginning for many families, because a significant economic downturn is on the way.
At this point what is approaching is so obvious that the Federal Reserve is even publicly admitting that a recession will start “later this year”
I honestly cannot remember the last time that the Federal Reserve actually predicted that a recession would be coming.
Normally, the Fed is wildly optimistic with their projections because they want us to have faith that their policies are working.
But now even they have thrown in the towel.
Bank of America is also sounding the alarm. Analysts at the bank recently shared 12 charts “that show that the economy is about to enter a full-blown recession”, and I was particularly interested in what they had to say about tightening credit conditions.
If you still believe that our leaders will magically find some way out of this economic mess, you are definitely in the minority at this point. According to a survey that KPMG conducted not too long ago, 91 percent of corporate CEOs in the U.S. “are convinced we are heading toward a recession in the next 12 months”.
The “retail apocalypse” that we went through a few years ago will be nothing compared to what we will soon experience. According to analysts at UBS, we could eventually see more than 50,000 retail stores in this country permanently close their doors.
The recession of 2023 won’t just be the end of a typical business cycle.
The truth is that what we are witnessing is the culmination of many long-term economic trends that I have been watching for a long time.
Our leaders have been making disastrous decisions for decades, and now we are going to reap what they have sown.
