The Long-Term Forecast for the United States Economy By Dr. Ray Perryman

Dr. M. Ray Perryman

Published in syndication on November 13, 2019

The US economy is well positioned for long-term growth, and our latest forecast indicates expansion at a moderate pace. Jobs continue to be added at a notable rate, and other signals are generally positive. For example, the housing market has finally worked through the major problems of the Great Recession, a positive signal for expansion. At the same time, trade issues remain unresolved and labor shortages are impediments to optimal performance.

A key issue in US economic performance is effectively dealing with trade issues. Agreements with Mexico and Canada as well as China and other nations have the potential to markedly improve prospects. Tariffs in the US and China continue to hurt consumers and companies, although we seem to have a potential respite in the works. The trade war has had rippling effects literally everywhere, and with the two largest economies involved, the worldwide supply chain has been disrupted. The longer the trade war persists, the more long-term distortions will occur. In addition, Brexit-related uncertainty has caused slowing in the UK, and other key European economies (such as Germany and Spain) are also experiencing sluggish growth, exacerbating the situation.

A lack of worker availability is constraining growth in some sectors and geographic areas, as US unemployment rates trend well below the level widely considered to be “full employment.” Over time, demographic trends and the retirement of the Baby Boom generation in large numbers will increase labor force challenges. Technological advances which enhance productivity, immigration policy reform, and worker retraining programs will be needed to resolve this issue.

The Perryman Group’s latest long-term forecast anticipates moderate growth, with business cycles in intervening years being likely. During the 2018 to 2045 period, real gross product is projected to expand from an estimated $18.6 trillion to $35.7 trillion, a 2.45% annual growth rate. Employment is forecast to reach 213.2 million by 2045, up from 149.0 million in 2018. This 1.34% annual rate of growth in employment would result in the addition of some 64.2 million jobs. This pace is well above the internal increase in working-age population, thus requiring immigration. Inflation is expected to remain fairly low. While interest rates are projected to rise from current levels, they should remain below patterns observed over a span of several decades. Income and industrial production are also forecast to see significant gains.

Despite current uncertainty over global trade and looming workforce challenges, the United States is expected to see long-term growth. By the end of the forecast horizon, there are likely to be sweeping, technology-enabled changes in the way business is conducted, but indications are that the US is well-positioned to adapt and innovate to remain competitive.

The Perryman Group is a focused team of analysts who know how to address complex economic information tasks and present our findings effectively.

Our in-house professionals bring expertise in economics, finance, statistics, mathematics, real estate, valuation, systems analysis, engineering, technical communications, and marketing. Dr. Ray Perryman, President, and CEO, has more than 40 years of experience in developing systems, analyzing complex problems, and communicating effectively.

Houston Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) via the Greater Houston Partnership


The Houston Purchasing Managers Index (PMI), a short-term leading indicator for regional economic activity, registered 51.1 in October, down from 53.5 in September, and the lowest reading since October ’17 during the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. Readings above 50 signal expansion in the overall economy. The region’s PMI has signaled expansion in overall economic activity for 39 consecutive months. In contrast, the national manufacturing PMI has trended downward since March and currently stands at 48.3.

PMI - Oct 2019

The Houston PMI is derived from monthly surveys of local purchasing managers representing various industries.  The three underlying components of the PMI with the strongest correlation to economic activity, sales/new orders, employment, and lead times, all showed expansion in October.  On an industry-specific basis, health care; transportation and utilities; and construction reported expansion, while oil and gas and manufacturing indicated contraction.

Jobs Snapshot By Dr. M. Ray Perryman

Dr. M. Ray Perryman Published in syndication on November 6, 2019

The US labor market is tight, with national unemployment rates well below the 4% level commonly considered “full employment.” There is perhaps some modest slack, with millions unemployed and others working part-time when they’d rather be working full time. Nonetheless, there are ample signs that even this limited supply of potential workers is diminishing in most markets and industries.

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 128,000 in October, which was significantly more than most analysts were expecting but well below the pace of the past eight years. After upward revisions for August and September job gains have averaged 176,000 over the past three months. Hiring was concentrated in food services and drinking places, social assistance, and financial activities. The General Motors strike dampened the numbers to some extent.

The unemployment rate remains about where it has been for months at 3.6%. The number of unemployed persons changed little in October and is less than 5.9 million, down from more than 6.1 million a year prior. More than 2.3 million of these unemployed persons have recently entered or re-entered the job market, and many will be hired almost immediately. The number of persons employed part time for economic reasons, meaning they would prefer to be working full time, is now about 4.4 million, down from 4.6 million last October.

One sign of tight markets is rising wages as companies pay more to attract and retain quality employees. Over the past 12 months, average hourly earnings have increased by 3.0%, and wages and salaries have been increasing by a little less than 3% for the past couple of years. Labor costs in some industries are rising even faster; construction wages are up 3.5% over the past year. In some geographic areas and some specialties, increases have been much more rapid.

Although the number of job openings has fallen slightly, it remains at about 7.0 million. In other words, there are far more jobs than there are unemployed people, even before accounting for the mismatches in skills and geographies. It’s a good problem to have, but it’s still a problem. The economy requires a certain number of extra workers to function efficiently, and there just aren’t very many of them.

There are signs the US economy is slowing (though still growing), and the labor market may ease moderately as a result. At the same time, the shortage of workers is constraining growth in some areas and industries. Over the long term, market solutions will emerge, from automation to artificial intelligence to improved immigration policies and job training initiatives. Until then, expect wages to continue to edge up as competition for workers remains intense.
