Survey: Economists Expect Biden Recession, Slowing Growth, Job Losses

October 18, 2022 — 'Inflation Reduction Act'    — Bidenflation    — Blog    — Select Revenue Measures    — Talking Points   

Despite President Biden’s continued denial and claims that the economy is “strong as hell,” inflation has never been higher under his presidency, which has experts anticipating a recession in the next 12 months.

A Wall Street Journal survey of economists put the probability of a recession in the next year at 63 percent, which is up 14 percent from July.

The WSJ reports: 

“[Economists] forecasts for 2023 are increasingly gloomy. Economists now expect gross domestic product to contract in the first two quarters of the year, a downgrade from the last quarterly survey, whereby they penciled in mild growth.”

This comes as new analysis shows Biden-Flation has wiped away a month’s worth of earnings for more than half of U.S. workers – the steepest pay cut in 25 years.


Experts Say the U.S. Will be in Recession Next Year.

  • According to the WSJ survey, “economists put the probability of a recession in the next 12 months at 63 percent,” – the first time the probability has topped 50 percent since July 2020.
  • The majority of chief executive officers (CEO) surveyed by CNBC believe there will be a recession in the next year. Only a third believe it will be a “short” or “mild” recession, while 51 percent are considering layoffs in the next six months.
  • More than a third of chief financial officers (CFO) believe the U.S. is either already in a recession, or will be in one before the end of the year.

  • Economists now anticipate GDP will be even lower, growing less than one percent over the next 10 months.

  • Experts are warning that in a recession, job losses will “disproportionately fall on some of the most vulnerable workers, including minorities and less-educated employees.”
