We were expecting the recession in late 2022 and here we are in 2023 and it still has not arrived. Why not? Is there still a threat?
What are the factors to worry about, and which are still cause for optimism?
Will the issues of 2024 be the same as 2023 (workforce, inflation, interest rates, supply chain, etc.), or will we see new ones like oil price shocks, geopolitical escalation, government gridlock or others?
