We will continue to provide twice weekly updates including video communications as long as needed during this pandemic. I have always been a believer that transparency and communication is important when working together and I believe this is especially critical in these uncertain times.
As a country begins to re-open, I am hopeful that the economy will restart in a meaningful way leading to recovery in economic activity. As you know, I expect the recovery to be slower than many expect. Still, I do expect a recovery.
Here are a few data points to watch for regarding the path of recovery:
- Employment numbers
- Airline traffic
- Demand at theme parks
- GDP slope
- Vaccine updates
- Mortality and morbidity rates
There are many other factors we assess on an ongoing basis, but these particular data points are often covered in the news and give indications as to the slope of the economic bounce back in the United States.
