RELEASE DATE: JANUARY 31, 2022
DURATION: 50 MINUTES
For the first quarter of 2022, Dr. Robert Eyler provides an outlook on job, interest rates, incomes, housing, and demographics throughout California and Nevada to help credit unions plan for this year to help members in a volatile marketplace. Continued threats from variants and geopolitical uncertainty, as well as continued inflation pressure, may be forcing market interest rates up before the Federal Reserve makes any decisions and also threatening member wealth if equity markets begin a turbulent period. Dr. Eyler also shows the dynamics of California and Nevada labor markets, some of the regional concerns, and where we may see continued recovery by industry in the months ahead. Housing markets, a key issue for members and credit unions, continue to have strong median price forecasts, but for how long? Is that a good thing for members? Dr. Eyler provides these insights and more in the latest CCUL Webinar on Your Economy – Your Credit Union.
