The Economic Outlook for 2020 to 2030 in 24 Slides

In 2020, inflation-adjusted GDP is projected to grow by 2.2 percent, largely because of continued strength in consumer spending and a rebound in business fixed investment. Output is projected to be higher than the economy’s maximum sustainable output this year to a greater degree than it has been in recent years, leading to higher inflation and interest rates after a period in which both were low, on average. Continued strength in the demand for labor keeps the unemployment rate low and drives employment and wages higher. If current laws governing federal taxes and spending generally remained in place, the economy would expand at an average annual rate of 1.7 percent over the next decade, roughly the same rate as its potential growth.

CBO
Adjusted for inflation, GDP is
projected to grow by 2.2 percent in
2020, largely because of strong
consumer spending and a rebound
in business fixed investment. In
later years, economic growth slows
as growth in consumer spending
and private investment moderates.
3
CBO
Growth in consumer spending is
expected to remain solid in 2020,
buoyed by recent gains in household
wealth and by momentum in the
growth of wages and salaries.
Growth of business fixed investment
will rebound this year, CBO projects,
because many of the factors that
weighed on investment during
2019—including lower oil prices,
businesses’ increasing uncertainty
about future trade policies, and a
decline in aircraft purchases—are
expected to reverse or to have a
smaller impact on growth.
4
CBO
In CBO’s projections, output
grows faster than the economy’s
maximum sustainable output
(or potential GDP) in 2020. From
2021 to 2030, output is projected
to grow at an average annual
rate of 1.7 percent, roughly the
same rate as potential GDP,
which is determined by factors
such as the size of the labor
force, the average number of
hours worked, capital investment,
and productivity growth.
5
CBO
The difference between actual and
potential GDP, known as the output
gap, is projected to be larger than
it has been in recent years, leading
to higher inflation and interest rates
after a period in which both were
low, on average. Over the next few
years, the output gap narrows,
reducing the upward pressure on
inflation and interest rates.

The Economic Outlook for 2020 to 2030 in 24 Slides

  • 1. CONGRESSIONAL BUDGET OFFICE The Economic Outlook for 2020 to 2030 in 24 slides January 2020 For more details, see Congressional Budget Office, The Budget and Economic Outlook: 2020 to 2030 (January 2020), www.cbo.gov/publication/56020.
  • 3. 2 CBO Adjusted for inflation, GDP is projected to grow by 2.2 percent in 2020, largely because of strong consumer spending and a rebound in business fixed investment. In later years, economic growth slows as growth in consumer spending and private investment moderates.
  • 4. 3 CBO Growth in consumer spending is expected to remain solid in 2020, buoyed by recent gains in household wealth and by momentum in the growth of wages and salaries. Growth of business fixed investment will rebound this year, CBO projects, because many of the factors that weighed on investment during 2019—including lower oil prices, businesses’ increasing uncertainty about future trade policies, and a decline in aircraft purchases—are expected to reverse or to have a smaller impact on growth.
  • 5. 4 CBO In CBO’s projections, output grows faster than the economy’s maximum sustainable output (or potential GDP) in 2020. From 2021 to 2030, output is projected to grow at an average annual rate of 1.7 percent, roughly the same rate as potential GDP, which is determined by factors such as the size of the labor force, the average number of hours worked, capital investment, and productivity growth.
  • 6. 5 CBO The difference between actual and potential GDP, known as the output gap, is projected to be larger than it has been in recent years, leading to higher inflation and interest rates after a period in which both were low, on average. Over the next few years, the output gap narrows, reducing the upward pressure on inflation and interest rates.
  • 7. 6 CBO Over the next decade, real potential GDP is projected to grow faster than it has since the last recession because of faster growth in potential labor force productivity. However, growth in the potential labor force is projected to be slower than in previous periods, largely because of the aging of the population.
  • 9. 8 CBO In CBO’s estimation, strong growth in labor demand this year will move employment further above its maximum sustainable amount, thereby increasing the employment gap. Although economic and job growth are projected to slow in later years, employment, which tends to lag behind movements in output, is expected to remain above its maximum sustainable level over the next five years, supporting relatively robust wage growth during that time.
  • 10. 9 CBO In CBO’s projections, the unemployment rate remains near historic lows throughout 2020. It then rises steadily, mostly because of slower economic growth, and surpasses the natural rate of unemployment in 2024.
  • 11. 10 CBO The strong labor market keeps the labor force participation rate elevated for much of 2020. Starting in 2021, as economic and job growth slows, participation falls toward its potential rate— which also decreases, largely because of the aging of the population.
  • 12. 11 CBO In recent years, participation in the labor force among 25- to 54- year-olds has almost reached prerecession levels as a result of sustained economic growth. As economic growth slows in CBO’s projections, that upward trend flattens.
  • 13. 12 CBO Wage growth remains strong over the next several years as employers continue to bid up the price of labor to recruit and retain workers.
  • 14. 13 CBO Economywide, data from household surveys show that gains in hourly wages have become increasingly broad-based in recent years: They have been especially strong for low- wage earners since late 2016. In 2019, wage growth also picked up notably for middle-wage earners.
  • 15. 14 CBO Labor income as a share of GDP is projected to rise slightly, reaching 58.6 percent in 2028, as wages and salaries grow more quickly than the rest of national income. That share is projected to remain close to 58.5 percent through the end of 2030.
  • 17. 16 CBO PCE = personal consumption expenditures. In CBO’s projections, several factors cause inflation to accelerate in 2020, including strong labor and product markets. After 2021, diminishing strength in those markets slows the rate of inflation.
  • 18. 17 CBO In CBO’s projections, the Federal Reserve begins raising the target range for the federal funds rate at the end of 2021—which helps reduce inflationary pressures, in line with the Federal Reserve’s long-run objectives.
  • 19. 18 CBO In CBO’s projections, short-term interest rates follow a path similar to that of the federal funds rate over the next several years, and long-term interest rates rise—in part because of investors’ expectations about short-term rates.
  • 21. 20 CBO As the current economic expansion continues, certain risk factors—such as unintended adverse effects of economic policies, economic and financial imbalances, or external shocks—may arise or compound, increasing the likelihood of a recession.
  • 22. 21 CBO CBO estimates that—if the errors in the agency’s current economic forecast are similar to those in its previous forecasts— there is approximately a two- thirds chance that the average annual rate of real GDP growth would be between 0.5 percent and 3.1 percent over the next five years.
  • 24. 23 CBO CBO’s forecasts for the next two years are generally stronger than those in the Blue Chip survey.
  • 25. 24 CBO Each of the data points for the federal funds rate represents a forecast made by one of the members of the Federal Reserve Board or one of the presidents of the Federal Reserve Banks in December 2019. Compared with the forecasts made by Federal Reserve officials, CBO’s projections suggest a slightly stronger outlook for 2020 but a slightly weaker outlook for 2021, 2022, and the longer term.
  • 26. 25 CBO About This Document These slides were prepared by Casey Labrack and Jeffrey Schafer. For more details about CBO’s economic outlook as well as the agency’s most recent budget projections, see The Budget and Economic Outlook: 2020 to 2030 (January 2020), www.cbo.gov/publication/56020. That report was the result of work by many analysts at CBO.
