    Economy in 2019: Slowing but Growing

    Despite increasing political uncertainty, a split Congress, trade concerns, financial-market volatility and slowing growth both here and abroad, the next 12 months should be decent. The odds of a recession have roughly doubled but remain relatively low – about 25 percent – despite being just a few months away from the longest economic recovery in U.S. history.
