One of the most accurate predictors of a recession is the yield curve, which is why so many people keep an eye on it. However, there is much more to unpack than simply watching the spread between the 10 and the 2.
Our guest for today is Ali Wolf who is the Director of Economic Research for Meyers Research. As head of the Economics Department, Ali manages and analyzes the content for the firm, provides data analytics, runs special research projects, and does presentations across the country on topics spanning both the housing market as well as the wider economy.
