Vincent Deluard: The “Magic Money” That Prevented Recession Is About To Disappear

In fall 2022 when most economists were anticipating an imminent recession, Vincent Deluard made the bold call that several forms of "stealth stimulus" would prevent the U.S. from entering a recession in 2023. Now Deluard, director of Global Macro at StoneX, returns to Forward Guidance to share why these hidden forms of government stimulus (social security cost of living adjustment, tax-bracket adjustment, etc.) will be less of a factor in 2024, and as such, Deluard expects the U.S. economy to slow. Deluard reaffirms his long-term inflationary view and explains why he is bearish U.S. stocks, and prefers international stocks. Filmed on August 21, 2023.
