The Upcoming Recession: Should I Be Concerned?

UCLA Extension Business Insights Podcast logo
Episode 1

Every day the media trumpets the vulnerability of the economy including selected sound bites intended to be “newsmakers.”

In 20 minutes, you’ll better understand the impact of recession on financial markets, businesses, and our job markets. Our focus includes recognition of the impact of global money managers, asset pricing trends, and suggestions for your own preparation (career and investment planning).

Remember that “the trend is your friend,” but where we are in the channel of a trend is more of a warning than a forecast.
