The search for a turning point in the Fed’s battle with inflation continues into 2023

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (Jan. 3, 2023) – A familiar economic narrative from 2022 – a stronger-than-expected job market keeps pressure on the Federal Reserve to continue an aggressive schedule of interest rate increases – is poised to continue into 2023. When will the Fed’s efforts to slow the economy and bring down inflation begin to gain traction?

Join us for the Kenan Institute’s virtual press briefing at 9 a.m. EST this Friday, Jan. 6, as we provide instant analysis following the latest employment report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Institute Chief Economist Gerald Cohen will offer his insights and answer questions from the audience. In addition, he’ll talk about trends to watch in 2023 and discuss the cities projected to see the biggest increase in economic growth this year, according to American Growth Project research.

Experts from the institute will appear in the coming months and offer insights from their areas of specialization. The briefings will occur on the morning that the employment report is released, 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: Jan. 6, 2023, 9 a.m. EST (U.S. and Canada)
