The economy continues to confound.  Has inflation peaked or will it continue to stay elevated?  Is the labor market softening or will the historic labor shortage continue to keep unemployment low?  How high will the Federal Reserve increase interest rates and have they gone too far?  How will the economy perform in a potential recession?  Robert’s presentation will examine these challenges and how businesses can continue to thrive in an uncertain environment.
