The U.S. economic outlook for 2016 is encouraging. Overall, we’re looking at: • A healthy Gross Domestic Product in the 2-3% range, • A low unemployment rate at between 4-6%, • Inflation will remain under control, and • Interest rates can be expected to slowly grow through 2016. Let’s take a look at 4 specific key industries • Energy: Like the previous two years, 2016’s US economy will get a big shot-in-the-arm from U.S. shale oil production, which has reduced oil prices 25% in the last few years. In turn, lower oil prices means lower cost of: transportation, food, and raw materials; thus raising profit margins and giving consumers more disposable income. • Manufacturing: US manufacturing is expected to increase faster than the general economy and grow by approximately 2.6%. • Housing: As housing recovers, construction will add an additional 1.8 million jobs. • Healthcare: Even with the Affordable Health Care Act under attack at every turn, it is no surprise that 2016 will be a banner year for healthcare. As our population ages, healthcare will continue to become more important to our economy for another 20-30 years. More forecasts include: • The Stock Market is predicted to set new highs, • The Housing Market Will Strengthen • The Fed Will Gradually Raise the Fed Funds Rate • Gas Prices Will Creep Up only a Bit in the Spring AND • The strong dollar may begin to reverse its course Even though 2016 looks pretty upbeat, there’s still quite a bit of uncertainty.
