As a member of Vistage, the nation's largest CEO group for small business's I was pleased to have a guest speaker from a financial modeling and economic forecasting company. Due to the confidentiality of their report, I will instead refer to the Congressional Budget Office.
This report presents the baseline economic forecast that the Congressional Budget Office is using as the basis for updating its budget projections for 2020 to 2030. The agency currently plans to release those budget projections later this summer.
This economic forecast provides CBO’s first complete set of economic projections through 2030 since January and incorporates information available as of June 26.1 The baseline forecast is being published now, rather than later with the budget projections, to provide the Congress with CBO’s current assessment of the economic outlook in a rapidly evolving environment. This economic forecast updates the interim forecast that CBO published in May, which focused on 2020 and 2021.2 It is similar to the May forecast for those two years, except that the projection of growth in the second half of 2020 has been revised downward.
The 2020 coronavirus pandemic has brought about widespread economic disruption. To mitigate the contagion, governments, businesses, and households in the United States and around the world have taken measures to limit in-person interactions. Collectively referred to as social distancing, those measures include reducing social activities and travel, curtailing the activity of schools and business, and working from home. In the first quarter of 2020, the pandemic and associated social distancing ended the longest economic expansion and triggered the deepest downturn in output and employment since World War II.
CBO projects that if current laws governing federal taxes and spending generally remain in place, the economy will grow rapidly during the third quarter of this year.
Kitchen Remodeling Success Story
We recently had a customer out in Winter Haven who needed their kitchen remodeled. This job was then promptly introduced to a local installer who orders their doors from one of Dackor's local press customers in Florida.
The cabinetry needed to be laminated to a cream white color to match the walls. They had an island and lower cabinets that needed to be laminated in a navy blue color to match the aesthetic. Not to mention, there were many different new kitchen appliance installations that would affect the laminate application process. When all was said and done however, the results were night and day!
The Perfect Touch Snow White cabinetry matched the walls of the house nicely to maintain a clean look. The Perfect Touch Mysterious color on the island and lower cabinets complimented the aesthetic of the kitchen nicely in a way that didn't take away from the granite countertops. And all of this was done seamlessly to make room for a whole new set of appliances to compliment the fresh new look.
