Navigating choppy economic waters

In this episode, our host Alyssa McMahon from Macquarie’s Corporate Affairs team is joined by David Doyle, Macquarie’s Head of Economics. David and Alyssa discuss the slowdown in global economic growth, focussing on the US, where the Federal Reserve is working to bring down surging inflation without sending the world’s largest economy into recession. As well as exploring US consumer sentiment and changing spending patterns, they look at where the housing and labour markets are headed and what an economic slowdown might mean for the energy transition.
