While it’s difficult to predict what will happen with wholesale distribution and the broader U.S. economy in the fourth quarter and beyond, MDM’s newest feature, the Quarterly Markets Forecast, zeroes in on the different scenarios that might transpire.
In a recent video interview with MDM, Brian Lewandowski of the Leeds School of Business at the University of Colorado Boulder — our partner on the Markets Forecast — digs into some of recent data points and how those factor into the different market forecast scenarios for wholesale distribution in the near- and short-term.
Although the video was recorded before the latest Q3 data was released, his comments provide important context on how Q4 and 2021 might shake out for distributors. Lewandowski shows how recent trends such as payroll data, personal income, personal consumption expenditures, income and savings, retail and food service sales, and wholesale distribution growth will play a combined role in how the market performs moving forward.
