Recent economic disruptions considered in the following forecast include the domestic and foreign impact of COVID-19, recognition of a recession beginning in March 2020, high volatility across financial and equity markets, emergency policies set in place by the Federal Reserve, some early government stimulus, significantly lower oil prices, mounting political uncertainty, and social unrest headed into the 2020 presidential election. Based on the speed, breadth and apparent lasting impacts of these various factors, FMI is anticipating the current recession to continue through the remainder of 2020 and possibly into 2021.
