The April 2017 edition of the CUNA Economic Update, CUNA’s monthly video series exploring economic trends and their impact on the credit union movement, has been released. Sponsored by CUNA CFO Council, this month’s episode is hosted by CUNA Vice President of Research & Policy Analysis Mike Schenk.
“Although credit unions and the economy continue to do well overall, geopolitical uncertainty is creating volatility,” said Schenk. “In addition, the most recent jobs report was a bit of a disappointment and consumer spending is soft. This month, we examine some of the potential trouble signs, explore how credit unions should respond to them and share our general economic outlook for the near future.”
Schenk also provides analysis of the Federal Reserve’s recent behavior and whether recent market trends point towards an adjustment in the federal funds interest rate.
The CUNA Economic Update is free for all CUNA member credit unions.
