MADISON, Wis. (3/22/16)--The latest macroeconomic statistics and their effect on the credit union operating environment are highlighted in the latest Credit Union National Association (CUNA) Economic Update.
“In the past month, we’ve seen a litany of positive fiscal indicators, both for credit unions and the economy as a whole,” said Perc Pineda, CUNA senior economist. “Whether you’re considering growth, inflation, credit or any other factor, the outlook is very hopeful for the movement and should continue to be throughout the year.”
The 15-minute video is sponsored by the CUNA CFO Council.
Pineda covers labor improvements, consumer attitudes toward the housing market, the potential of interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve, and the year’s strong start to lending experienced by credit unions.
