The Economic Outlook: Growth Weakens, Inflation Unchanged

The consensus forecast among economists attending the most recent Fourth District Economists’ Roundtable calls for continuing slow growth well into 1990 followed by a more rapid growth in output by late this year. Little improvement is expected, however, in the overall inflation rate despite the current slow growth.
