It has been another unsettling year economically. 2016 began with economic caution and murmurings of a possible recession. But the stock market appeared to be on an upward trajectory. Now, Brexit, the British exit from the EU, has roiled markets erasing all of this year’s gains. What do economists see for the rest of the year? We talk to two of them and the banking reporter for The Charlotte Observer.

Tim Quinlan
- senior economist, Wells Fargo

Deon Roberts - banking reporter, The Charlotte Observer

Dr. John Connaughton - Babson Capital professor of financial economics, UNC Charlotte, Belk College of Business
