Is the recovery finally here? Consumer spending is on the rise, and retail sales and housing starts are increasing. Businesses are spending more on equipment and software and the private sector is adding more payrolls. This would all signal that we’re on the upswing but yet the Federal Reserve continues to maintain low interest rates and credit remains tight. Is there another economic dip in our future or are we improving slowly with precautionary measures?

To keep Congressional staffers up to date on the current economic situation, the Mercatus Center hosts quarterly briefings that survey the current economic scene. Special attention is paid to inflation, GDP, unemployment, and interest rates.

Hosted by Dr. Bruce Yandle, one of our most popular speakers, these quarterly briefings are free of charge and open to all senior congressional staffers.
