State of the Economy with Diane Swonk

Jill on Money with Jill Schlesinger - November 15, 2018 - 33:04

You guys know I’m a sucker for chatting with a rockstar economist, especially when it’s a woman! We did it earlier this year with Linda Yueh, and this week we’re doing it again with Diane Swonk. Diane is one of the most respected macroeconomists, who maintains a unique perspective on the inner workings of Main Street as well as Wall Street. She is an expert on the economics of the labor market, monetary policy and structural changes that are distinct from economic cycles. All of this came in handy as we chatted about global and domestic economic conditions, touching on a variety of topics such as:Will there be more interest rate hikes?Are we on the verge of another recession?What is the biggest threat facing the global economy?With a network that includes economists, industry leaders and geopolitical experts, Diane advises policy makers at all levels of government, including central bankers. For her outstanding contributions in the field of economics, Diane has been named a Fellow of the National Association for Business Economics (NABE). She is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, serves on the Sitting Committee to the Booth School of Business at the University of Chicago and advises the economics department at the University of Michigan. She has testified before Congress to improve the quality of economic data and on the causes and consequences of income inequalities. If you’re a Twitter user, Diane is definitely one to follow.
