Stock market volatility reflects a weaker profits environment.

Document Highlights

GDP growth will retreat toward its long-term trend in 2019. Business confidence has weakened as a result. Rising wages and capital costs along with policy uncertainty are creating more uncertain business conditions. Still, even though consumer expectations fell last month, the labour market remains robust and is supporting consumer spending growth. A recession is not immediately on the horizon. The Federal Reserve may also provide some relief to firms by slowing its path of rate increases so long as inflation remains contained. Businesses will need to adjust investment behaviour to a slowing but still clearly growing economy.
