Pries Capital’s Macroeconomic Framework where we believe the two most critical variables in any economy are “Growth” and “Inflation.” The level of growth or inflation is not as important as the direction because the economy and asset markets are relative, not static. When we look to forecast the expected future direction of these two variables: “Growth” and “Inflation.” Is the rate of economic growth going to rise or fall? Of the two factors, the direction of real economic growth is more important for asset price performance.

Macroeconomics is the branch of economics that deals with the structure, performance, behavior, and decision-making of the whole, or aggregate, economy. Macroeconomics is a rather broad field, but two specific areas of research are representative of this discipline. The first area is the factors that determine long-term economic growth, or increases in the national income. The other involves the causes and consequences of short-term fluctuations in national income and employment, also known as the business cycle.
