Report January 2008
A new Strategic Analysis by the Levy Institute's Macro-Modeling Team reviews the domestic economy and where things might be headed. It argues that a significant drop in borrowing is likely to take place in the coming quarters unless the dollar is allowed to continue its fall and thus complete the recovery in the external imbalance, and fiscal policy shifts its course—as it did in the 2001 recession.
