In his presentation, Dr. Duca stated that the economy is not as variable as it once was in history.  In recent times, shocks to the economy show up as blips on the screen.  Furthermore, payrolls are up and unemployment is down.  The conclusion is that 2020 looks like it is going to be a good economic year in the USA.
