Outlooks

Economic Outlook, July 2018

Fears of an imminent U.S. recession are premature; tax policy and a more business-friendly regulatory environment provide long-term catalysts for the economy. Although conditions outside the U.S. are less encouraging, positive global growth should continue, albeit with growing divergence among countries. The need for active risk management has increased at this point of the economic cycle, and we believe the Calamos portfolios are well positioned.
