Never a Dull Moment – Economy in 2018
We knew this would be a jam packed year just because of the mid-term elections but thus far 2018 has exceeded expectations. Tax cuts, deficits, tariffs, trade wars, inflation, interest rate hikes and the list grows every day. Where are we now and what can we expect in the months to come? Certainly not a return to calm and collected.
