bsg dr. sinai 2018 economic forecast


For the last 4 years, we’ve had Dr. Allen Sinai pull together his predictions for the economic year ahead. 2 years ago, Dr. Sinai said “put all your cash into equities, the market is going to go nowhere but up.” Last year, Allen forecast what the likely impact of Trump and Trumponics was going to have in 2017. As PE investors and investor-backed CEOs, it’s crucial to know what the economic weather forecast is going to look like in order to plan your business, and work your plan.
