An investment bank is pre-emptively urging it’s investors to prepare for the slowdown in the United States of America in terms of the economy, by 2018.

 

"The US economy will in all likelihood slow down substantially: there is a limit to the rise in the participation rate and the employment rate; real wages are slowing down," stated Patrick Artus. Patrick is chief economist at Natixis. "Investors should therefore prepare for the consequences.”

 

Consequences of the slowdown, include a brief rise in interest rate, a market sell-off and also a depreciating dollar value.

 

For those of you who don’t know about Natixis. Natixis is a French cooperate and investment bank which has it’s headquarters in Paris, France. Natixis Global Asset Management oversees about $950 billion according to their press-releases and website.

 

Patrick Artus, also stated that the current levels of investments are extremely high, and also went on to suggest a downward trend and a correction in the market by next calendar year.

 

 

However, several investment banks on Wall Street are not that pessimistic of US’s economy. Foreseeing a growth of 2.5% in GDP (Gross Domestic Product) in the third quarter, year over year. The consensus estimate was called by Reuters and it is stated that The Bureau of Economic Analysis will release GDP number on Friday before the end of trading day on WallStreet.

 

None of the major banks see a downward trend or slowdown in US’s economy in the near future. Alongwith that, the local population of the US is also bullish on the economic growth, according to several surveys, optimism with respect to the economy hit an all time high, earlier in October. 43% of the people surveyed, believe that the economy of America is in excellent or good condition.

 

One of the most reputated investment banks, Goldman Sachs is bearish on the US economy, however. Predicting 3.9% annual growth in 2020 but a down turn to just 1.5% till 2020.

 

Economic growth has been a hot topic in the political scenario in US as well. With the President, Donald Trump touting the 3% growth rate as a main goal for his economic plan, calling for the new proposed tax-cuts which would push the output higher according to the government.

 

Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan told CNBC in September "You're not going to get 3 percent economic growth in 2018 if you don't get the tax reform done in 2017.”
