“Austinites and Texans will continue to receive the most accurate forecast!  We will look at the challenges and opportunities that Austin faces as one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S.  This is a chance for individuals to plan for their business in healthcare, hospitality, construction, engineering, and technology and to learn about new exciting opportunities available in Austin’s Economy”, said Angelou, chief economist at AngelouEconomics.

“For the U.S., the outlook for the year ahead is characterized by a split level economy. Consumer spending, housing and government spending will exhibit positive trends net exports will be a drag.  Inflation will rise gradually and remain below the Fed’s 2% target level over the next four quarters. The Fed is expected to raise the federal funds rate at a gradual pace while the yield curve will flatten over the period ahead. Better U.S. growth and an increase in the funds rate will both tend to raise the dollar further against the Mexican peso and the Canadian dollar. Corporate profit gains will be limited by slow global growth and the stronger dollar.  Financial markets do face the risk of heightened volatility as the election year begins in the first half of 2016,” said John E. Silvia, Chief Economist with Wells Fargo.
