CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (June 4, 2024) – The storyline of a softening economy grows more certain with the arrival of new data: personal income and outlays experiencing slower growth; consumer spending down in real terms month on month; and inflation, as measured by a gauge preferred by the Federal Reserve, relatively mild.

How will the Fed react? And will the new jobs report again show softening in the labor market? Kenan Institute Research Director Camelia Kuhnen will examine these questions and more during the institute’s monthly virtual briefing at 9 a.m. EDT this Friday, June 7.

Experts from the institute will appear on the briefing each month and offer commentary in their areas of specialization. Briefings occur on the morning that the Bureau of Labor Statistics releases its employment report, usually the first Friday of each month.

You’re invited to join via Zoom (registration details below) and welcome to respond directly to this email to submit any questions you would like to be addressed.

You are invited to a Zoom webinar.
When: June 7, 2024, 9 a.m. EDT (U.S. and Canada)
