Economic Take is a podcast covering the latest on the economy with JPMorgan Chase Commercial Banking’s Head Economist, Jim Glassman.
Tracking the Pace of Recovery
Day by day, wider COVID-19 vaccination has business owners visualizing a recovery with real staying power. But the amount of time it takes for the hardest-hit sectors to rebound—including hospitality, air travel and services—will vary. Jim checks the data and offers a picture of how the recovery may progress this year and next.
Consumer Spending: Hungry for More?
Consumer spending is now back to pre-pandemic levels, but it’s likely to take a lot more than home delivery to satisfy consumer appetites in the coming months. Jim takes a look at fresh economic signals that could make 2021 the year of the consumer.
Two Sectors to Watch in Manufacturing’s Recovery
While some manufacturers benefited from the COVID-19 e-commerce boom in 2020, makers of aerospace and oil and gas products are still navigating significant challenges. Jim examines developments that could put these critical U.S. manufacturing sectors back to full capacity soon.
Cooling Concerns About an Overheating Economy
With a third massive health and economic pandemic relief package moving through Congress, Jim examines concerns about overstimulating the economy and why a temperate outcome is more likely.
Tackling the Jobs Recovery
As the Biden administration accelerates its COVID-19 vaccination rollout and Congress negotiates a new round of economic stimulus, Jim sees a game plan that could return the U.S. to full employment by year-end.
What’s Ahead for Biden’s Global Business Agenda
In this special edition of Economic Take, Jim brings back JPMorgan Chase colleagues Mel Martinez, former U.S. Senator from Florida and Chairman of the Southeast U.S. and Latin America, and Morgan McGrath, Head of International Banking for the Commercial Bank. The three discuss potential moves by the Biden administration for new economic stimulus, infrastructure spending, immigration policy and global trade, particularly with China.
