Coming Attraction: Economic Outlook for Credit Unions
Steve Rick, Senior Economist, Credit Union National Association, Madison, Wisconsin
This presentation discusses how the global economy, the overall financial sector and the stressed labor market will affect the U.S. economy, U.S. interest rates and ultimately credit union balance sheet and earnings performance. Steve Rick will analyze and establish standards against which your credit union’s own performance can be measured. Rick also identifies trends of savings and loan activity, and weigh the influence of future economic events on growth patterns out into 2013.
