In the late 1970s one of President Carter's economic advisors-under pressure to avoid mentioning the term recession-used the word "banana" to speak of recessions. Much like the double meaning represented in the title, there are conflicting risks-to the upside and downside-confronting markets every single day. As the cycle continues to mature, many have turned their attention to the thought of a recession, but is a recession inevitable? Is it a good thing for markets to not have a recession? Go on a deeper dive into the important factors that will influence economic and market outcomes, key insights and an outlook (short term and long term).

Key Takeaways:

  • Gain a greater understanding of how to think about markets over varying periods of time. This is accomplished by examining how short-term trends and long-term trends interact to create today’s market dynamics.

  • Strengthen your ability to think critically about issues that matter and those that do not.

  • Sharpen your understanding of where markets are headed. Gain a better idea of where challenges may lie and conversely, where they may encounter attractive opportunities.
