Nordics’ economic outlook is bright, but near-term downside risks are rising

Topic: The Nordic recovery is on track despite some surprises in the Q2 GDP components and rising near-term downside risks. Goods exports have been weak, reflecting persistent strains in supply chains and input shortages affecting the region’s trade-sensitive economies. Growth in industry is likely to moderate and be subject to temporary setbacks, but the long-term outlook remains solid as the backlog of orders is eliminated and inventories are replenished. Surging domestic demand driven by eager-to-spend consumers alongside a superior virus containment strategy and high vaccination rates support an overall robust regional outlook.

Economics of a second Trump presidency

Continuing our series of analyses on the 2024 election, we modeled the macroeconomic impact of a second Donald Trump presidency. If the former president wins on Election Day, he will most likely return to the White House with Republican majorities in the House of Representatives and Senate. Assuming full Republican control of government after the 2024 election, we constructed two scenarios that bookend a range of outcomes for the US economy. This webinar will discuss the results of the Trump scenarios, including for inflation, GDP, monetary policy, trade and immigration.
