Jason Schenker, Economist: Keynote


Jason Schenker untangles contrasting economic outlooks, presenting hard data and its indications for the near future including "the good news, the bad news, and the really bad news." He spotlights one of the most reliable tools for predicting recessions or growth - records concerning the purchase of raw materials. "If you're below 50(%) for over three consecutive months, that's bad," he explains referring to the context of the U.S. where manufacturing makes up 13% of the GDP.

Turning to China, where manufacturing makes up 31% of the economy, he points out that the purchase of raw materials has been down for 15 out of the past 16 months. Nevertheless, the head of the IMF has stated in a recent interview that they expect China's growth to be 6%. "I will tell you that that number is pure fiction," Mr. Schenker states. "That economy is in recession."
