October 16, 2017
The October Bloomberg Survey of Economists shows economists expecting the recent hurricanes to temporarily affect the economic data followed by an equally temporary rebound. Growth is expected to be weaker in 3Q while inflation is expected to be higher and job growth slower. However, those trends are expected to reverse in 4Q and 1Q18. As for the interest rate outlook, economists generally left their interest rate projections unchanged with a slight cut to longer maturity Treasury yields.
