Recession probable in 2019, 2020; but don’t panic, economist says

MUSKEGON, MI – As the ever swinging pendulum of the U.S. economy comes back down, a recession will likely hit in 2019 or 2020, but it won’t be as severe as the Great Recession and it won’t affect West Michigan as much as the rest of the country, according the Muskegon County Economic Forecast.

The forecast was presented by Professor Paul Isley, associate dean of the Grand Valley State University Seideman School of Business, at the Muskegon Lakeshore Chamber of Commerce Business for Breakfast on Friday, Jan. 27.
