Drawing on his role as the chief economist for the President of the United States during the worst macroeconomic shock to hit the U.S. economy since the Great Depression, Tyler Goodspeed discusses the geopolitical and economic trends underway in 2024. As both a PhD economist and PhD historian, he reexamines the lessons of the 1970s to offer insights into the likely path of inflation in the U.S. and globally in 2024 and beyond. Based on an ongoing book project examining 400 years of recessions in the U.S. and U.K., he also evaluates the probability of a recession over the next 12 months.

As one of the earliest voices warning of the risk of a persistent inflationary shock in early 2021, in this talk former Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers Dr. Tyler Goodspeed discusses the inflation outlook in 2023 and beyond. As  both a PhD economist and historian, he draws particularly on the macroeconomic experience of the 1960s and 1970s, and the disinflation of the early 1980s, to lay out the financial market challenges facing the Federal Reserve and other major central banks as they attempt to navigate back to their pre-pandemic inflation targets.

The four years of the Trump Administration witnessed economic changes of unique scale–the largest and most comprehensive tax reform in a generation; sweeping deregulation of the U.S. economy; a dramatic shift in international trade policy; the worst macroeconomic shock since the Great Depression; the biggest fiscal response to economic crisis in U.S. history; and the shortest recession and fastest recovery ever observed in the U.S. In addition, on the eve of the COVID pandemic, we had observed the biggest gains in real median household income in U.S. history, the biggest ever decline in poverty, and, in a sharp reversal of trends previously underway during the post-2008 recovery, declining wage, income, and wealth inequality. In this talk, the former Chairman of the President’s Council of Economic Advisers discusses the effects and legacy of that economic policy agenda and offers lessons for current policymakers.

Since 1945, the unconditional probability that the U.S. enters a recession in a given year is 16%. The unconditional probability that the U.S. is in a recession at any point during a given year is 28%. In this talk, former Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers Dr. Tyler Goodspeed discusses the history of recession in the United States and United Kingdom over the past two centuries. As a PhD economist and historian who helped to steer the U.S. government through the deepest and shortest recession in U.S. history, with the fastest rebound, Dr. Goodspeed brings unique insight to the questions of when to expect an episode of economic contraction, and what to expect in the event of one.
