CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (March 5, 2024) – The latest economic data suggests that the strong growth and elevated inflation outlook is increasingly likely. In our opinion, this means that the soft-landing scenario is getting squeezed, as higher rates, which are likely to stick around for longer, and pricing pressures will ultimately weigh on the economy. Will Friday’s employment report provide some clarity?

Join Kenan Institute Chief Economist Gerald Cohen for the institute’s monthly virtual briefing at 9 a.m. EST this Friday, March 8, when he will analyze the jobs report and what it may say about the economy’s future.

Experts from the institute will appear on the briefing each month and offer commentary in their areas of specialization. Briefings occur on the morning the employment report is released, usually the first Friday of each month.

You’re invited to join via Zoom and welcome to submit any questions you would like to be addressed to External Affairs Interim Director Rob Knapp.

You are invited to a Zoom webinar.
When: March 8, 2024, 9 a.m. EST (U.S. and Canada)
