Goldman Sachs lowers 2023 U.S. growth outlook

The founder of Satori Fun reacts to FedEx’s warning of a global recession, telling “The Claman Countdown” that our economic situation is due in part to the Fed initially ignoring the worst inflation in 40 years.

This causes Goldman to cut its US gross domestic product for 2023 and sees the unemployment rate rise more than expected.

In a note released late Friday, Goldman now expects GDP growth of 1.1% next year, down from its previous call for 1.5% growth from the fourth quarter of 2022 to the end of 2023. .

The Federal Reserve rattled the markets by implementing huge rate hikes in a bid to moderate the highest inflation in 40 years.
