Economic Forecast Points to Mild Slowdown on the Horizon

“We see some headwinds coming,” said economist Connor Lokar of ITR Economics during his forecast presentation at the 13th annual Glazing Executives Forum, held Sept. 12, during GlassBuild America: The Glass, Window & Door Expo in Las Vegas. “We expect it to be a speed bump—a pause in growth. This will not be the Great Recession.” Lokar said that key economic indicators point to a slowdown in the U.S. economy beginning in the fourth quarter of 2018 through at least the first half of 2019. But, he projects that the economy will be back to growth again in 2020.
