NC Economic Forecast

Jul 9, 2014



The U.S. economy shrank sharply in the first quarter but most analysts, including UNC Charlotte economics professor John Connaughton, saw that as a temporary setback. Connaughton recently released his second quarter findings and forecast and we’ll check in with him to see if that bounce back occurred. The stock market is roaring, businesses are hiring but legislators in Raleigh continue to bicker over the budget.
