Is a recession starting in 2019 or first half of 2020 unlikely?

Jason Ware, Chief Investment Officer of Albion Management Group, joins The Final Round to discuss markets and the economy. He argues that while the economy is not booming, it’s also not problematic and showing (material) signs of stress nor recession. In fact, given the preponderance of data, and typical (historical) lead times associated with the forward looking indicators, a recession starting in 2019 or first half of 2020 is unlikely.
