Stock markets around the world have experienced turbulent highs and lows in recent weeks – including the Dow’s dramatic 800-point loss, the worst of 2019 – as the ongoing trade war between the United States and China now shows signs of slowing the global economy.
Hofstra University Provost and Professor of Economics Herman Berliner can help make sense of the volatility that has struck the market, which has shown conflicting evidence of both a potential recession as well as robust consumer growth.
Dr. Berliner has been featured in media outlets including NBC News 4 New York, Fox 5 NY, NPR, Newsday, and News 12 Long Island, on topics ranging from the U.S.-China trade war to credit card rates and changes to the federal tax plan.
