2013 – Uncertainties Finally Abating
2012 was a year throttled by uncertainties and black swan events. Concerns over European fiscal calamities flared throughout the year – never truly exploding, but also never finding a cure. The Middle East and Africa were rout with political instability as the residual of the first Arab spring continues to be felt throughout the region and feed a cycle of global uncertainty. In 2012 many of the emerging markets that fueled global growth in prior years began to fade and cast shadows on the ability of these nations to continue to be engines of global growth. At home, once in a century droughts and storms hindered growth. National elections produced political uncertainties until the election was finally settled in November and then the U.S. faced its own fiscal crisis of confidence.  Many of these uncertainties have abated. The storms of 2012 have faded, but are there sunny days ahead?
Shawn DuBravac, Chief Economist and Senior Director of Research, Consumer Electronics Association
