In this week’s economic discussion, Larry takes us through more details about the Eurozone and Greece, looks at deficits and surpluses from the Congressional Budget Office, gives us some education on U.S. Fiscal Multipliers and ends with a picture of natural gas consumption in Europe. As usual, it is an enlightening discussion and an excellent way to learn about the economy.
At Sharkey, Howes & Javer, we have formal Investment Committee meetings. Every two weeks, we discuss recent market trends, the economy and strategize for the future.
Within each of these meetings, Larry Howes provides a very interesting and detailed report on the economy; questions are raised and insightful conversations pursue.
We have decided to open these internal economic discussions up to our clients by creating a new “series” where we record the economic portion of the investment meetings, and invite you to listen along with us.
The current audio was recorded in our meeting last Monday, December 8th. Please note that this was prior to last week’s market selloff, due to the ongoing decline in oil prices, and this will be addressed in next week’s economic discussion.
Please check the volume on your computer and have your headphones ready. We look forward to hearing what you think in the comments section below!
