With most of the attention focused on the FOMC Meeting, Trade War, and contentious political environment, many people overlooked this month’s Beige Book. The Beige Book is a compilation of activity and sentiment from businesses in the 12 Fed Districts across the country. The October Beige Book described Business Activity as “slight to modest” and Business attitudes as “more cautious”. This Economic summary also reported that Businesses expect the Economy to continue to grow but at a slower pace over the next 6 to 12 months. Businesses remain optimistic in the near term despite the Trade War. The Manufacturing sector saw weaker activity, and a shortage of workers exacerbated the Economic slowdown. In short: the Economy may be slowing down, but a Recession is still unlikely – despite what some doom-and-gloomers are saying.
