The closing weeks of 2018 were punctuated by wild swings in the markets and global uncertainty surrounding growth, trade and the macro climate. But what is in store for 2019? And how will these shifting sands impact Ohio banking and the Buckeye economy? Get the answers and more at the '19 OBL Economic Summit -- Boom or Bust? -- scheduled for Feb. 13 in Columbus.
This tenth annual event is expected to once again draw more than 400 bankers, their best commercial clients and industry service providers. Leading economist Dan North of Euler Hermes North America -– “The Man who Predicted the Great Recession” -– will be on hand to give Ohio bankers the inside track on economic developments.
“Growth policies have spurred optimism in both consumers and businesses, and a strong labor market and rising incomes will support the economy through 2019,” says North. “But headwinds are gathering strength. Rising interest rates, a stumbling housing market, and the developing trade war are all significant risks, and in the longterm, workforce demographics are likely to keep growth rates from returning to levels seen in previous recoveries.”
