Sam Kahan Honored with Lawrence R. Klein Award for Most Accurate Economic Forecasts

  • Despite the long list of headwinds, we are forecasting a decelerating but still positive real GDP growth for the U.S. economy.
  • Regarding sectors, transportation, and freight — ACT Research’s primary expertise — we expect to experience declines consistent with weakness of the goods-producing segments of the economy.
  • The consumer sector continues to be the main engine for growth.
  • Trade and related factors like tariffs remain the key risk elements.
  • Regarding policy levers, the Federal Reserve remains the major game in town, even as it is not well understood.
  • Amy Hillman, dean of ASU’s W. P. Carey School of Business
