Q3 Economic Outlook w/ Dorothy Jaworski - Director of Treasury and Risk Management
As Quarter 2 turns to Quarter 3, the nation’s economic outlook is changing with it. Widespread access to vaccines, a lifting of state and local mandates and economic restrictions, and the continued impact of consumer spending will ensure the summer of 2021 will look much different than the darker days of COVID-19. But with inflation fears, supply chain disruptions, and a uncertain labor market, what does the future hold? In this episode, we’re once again joined by Dorothy Jaworski – Penn Community Bank Director of Treasury & Risk Management – to take a look back at the first half of the year, and see what might come next. In our conversation we look at how far “pent up demand” can carry the economy, the rising cost of consumer goods, a new topic – crypto currency.  ---- If you enjoyed today’s episode, be sure to subscribe and leave us a rating.

On February 19, the stock market hit its highest mark in history. Less than a month later, on March 11, the coronavirus outbreak was declared a global pandemic, setting off the largest single-day market drop in a generation. In the weeks since, volatility has been the only constant, with near-daily surges and loses as the market reacts to international reports on the virus and economic relief efforts from Washington. Today, I’m joined by Christian Wagner, president of Penn Investment Advisors, to gain a clearer picture of what is driving the volatility of the market, what individuals and families can be doing to protect their wealth during this period, and get his thoughts on what comes next. ---- If you would like to learn more about Penn Investment Advisors visit them online at PennAdvisors.com If you enjoyed today’s episode, be sure to subscribe and leave us a rating.
