About One-Third of Economists Expect Recession in 2020

Thirty-four percent of economists surveyed last month by the National Association for Business Economics now predict a US recession in 2021, a nine-point uptick since the same survey was conducted in February. But 38 percent of economists expect the US will enter a recession next year. Two percent of economists said a downturn will begin sometime this year, down from 10 percent in February. Most of the 226 economists who participate in NABE surveys work for corporations or trade associations.

A quarter of those surveyed said they expected US-China trade talks would result in no agreement.
