As the US emerges from the COVID pandemic at varying rates, making sense of where the economy is headed is a big challenge. Bill Greiner will bring his data-driven perspective to help us sort it out. What is happening in the U.S. economy?  Where are we regarding the business cycle?  What is working, and what is challenging continued economic growth?  What major factors should we consider?  What variables need to be considered when making investment decisions in today’s environment?
