What is the state of the economy, and where is it headed in 2023?

This special edition of The Charlotte Ledger Podcast features a recent discussion by a panel of experts on current economic topics including inflation, interest rates, the job market, personal finances and the stock market — and where they might be headed. It’s a recording of a Jan. 4, 2023, online forum called “Taking the Air Out of Inflation: 2023 Economic Outlook.” The panel is presented by Davidson College and U.S. Bank, and the moderator is Charlotte Ledger editor Tony Mecia.

Panelists are:

  • Eric Freedman, chief investment officer at U.S. Bank Asset Management Group

  • Jennifer Streaks, senior personal finance reporter for the business publication Insider

  • Siobhan O’Keefe, assistant professor of economics at Davidson College

  • Matt Phillips, financial markets correspondent for Axios

The Charlotte Ledger Podcast is produced by Lindsey Banks.
