Inside the Economy with SH&J: January 18, 2016

As media headlines announce “plunging markets” and “warning signs of recession”, Larry Howes gives us the underlying details of the economy we are facing in 2016 and guides our expectations. He comments on the shrinking Federal deficit, consumer debt, and S&P 500 earnings. Why are Americans, on average, continuing to pay down debt, buy new cars, and increase personal savings? How has the interest rate increase affected the markets and consumers? Listen in and find out!

*Please note that during the commentary section, Larry mentions the $1.3 billion student loan market, which in reality is $1.3 trillion. Also, within the slide titled “The Fed trims its Bond-buying” Larry refers to liquidating $4.3 billion of the bond market when he meant to say $4.3 trillion.
