A Disastrous Decade: First Decade of the 21st Century had a Roaring Start and a Punishing Conclusion

Dr. Peter Linneman, NAI Global Chief Economist

Despite a roaring start to the new millennium, the U.S. economy has little to show for the past 10 years. NAI Global Chief Economist Dr. Peter Linneman examines the key factors and trends that led the U.S. and global economy on a volatile roller coaster over the past decade, from a promising start to a punishing conclusion in a new white paper.

Dr. Linneman provides analysis of real GDP growth (and contraction), household wealth, unemployment, industrial production, federal spending and looks into the true causes of the financial crisis. He also provides insight into what will happen with the economy in the coming decade.

This is your opportunity to provide relevant economic news and information to your clients and prospects.
