Struggling to navigate the unpredictable economic currents? Anirban Basu brings clarity to the complexities!

Join host Mike Merrill and renowned economist Anirban Basu as they do a deep dive into the state of the economy, particularly focusing on the construction industry. Anirban shares his expert insights on consumer behavior, federal spending, and economic predictions, offering valuable strategies for staying afloat in turbulent times.

As we navigate a landscape of high interest rates and inflation, understanding the underlying economic dynamics is crucial. Dr. Basu explains how despite high interest rates and inflation, consumer behavior remains strong, supported by significant federal spending and transformational projects like infrastructure enhancements.

“The consumer, who is much of the economy, has continued to spend despite high interest rates,” Dr. Basu said. “Right now, the economy has so much job creation, so many job openings, you have to think the consumer is going to continue to spend through the summer and into the fall. But the consumer cannot continue to borrow this way. It’s not sustainable.”

Dr. Basu offers a deep dive into how these factors are influencing the construction industry and presents actionable advice for businesses looking to weather potential downturns. Additionally, he addresses the critical challenge of replacing the aging workforce with skilled labor, emphasizing the role of education and policy in shaping future opportunities.
