Viewpoint 2016 — Long Run Assumptions
Our macro outlook is for slow growth and stubbornly low inflation. The start of policy normalization following years of zero interest rate policy in the United States comes at a time of weakening global growth and mixed signals from the domestic economy. We continue to view the United States economy as best positioned to weather the overall weak global environment that resurfaced in 2015.
In this report, we take a long-term view and address expectations for markets over the long run.
