Goldman Sachs Says No Recession is Coming
The whole market (and the media) seems to be worried about a looming recession. Driving that fear are many factors: a surging economy, very high market valuations, and a nearly inverted yield curve. Several big banks and research houses have put out warnings of a looming recession and bear market. However, one of the most prominent, Goldman Sachs, has just gone on the record doing the opposite. The bank says there is only a 36% chance of recession in the next three years, a figure below the historical average. "There has been increasing investor interest in the chance of a recession in the U.S. over the next few years … Our model paints a more benign picture", said GS economist Jan Hatzius. The bank did note that if a US recession does occur, it will likely drag many developed economies down with it.
FINSUM : Recessions are famously hard to call, so we won't go one way or the other. That said, there are some signs that a recession is looming. We certainly think the odds are higher than 36% for the next three years.
