2023 Economic and Financial Update
Last week, the Anaheim Chamber of Commerce co-sponsored the Newport Beach Chamber of Commerce’s 2023 Economic and Financial Update with UCI Paul Merage School of Business Associate Professor Christopher Schwarz.  Dr. Schwarz stated there were a number of economic indicators pointing to a recession in the latter half of 2023 or even in 2024.  The Federal Reserve is currently projecting 0.5% GDP growth, the lowest since 2009. There is currently an inverted yield curve, an indicator of the last nine recessions.  

Consumer spending is finally coming down – while normal year-over-year consumer spending increases are 10%, it had been 50% in 2021 over 2020.  The savings rate is lower than ever before.  There is a large decline in housing construction – the only larger declines have preceded recessions.  Tax receipts in November, December, and January were each down year-over-year.  The average price-to-earnings ratio of stock market shares across companies are the highest since the Internet bubble of the late 1990s.  He noted industries with overinvestment have historically been the hardest hit in a recession, and he pointed out that the heaviest overinvestment during the COVID-19 pandemic has been in the tech industry.
