Sean Snaith expects an economic slowdown in Orlando and beyond, but he’s not sure when it will start.
The director for the UCF Institute for Economic Forecasting highlighted a potential recession during a Feb. 1 event at Orlando’s Citrus Club. His talk was the year’s first in Dean’s Speaker Series, which features UCF College of Business faculty delivering a fast-paced, timely TED-Talk-style presentation on an aspect of their research.
Snaith has been projecting a “pasta bowl-shaped” U.S. recession, where over the period of a year, the nation gradually will enter and exit an economic downturn.
