Ten Years of Economic Growth

The Good, The Bad, The Future

Analysis by Dr. Victor Calanog, Shan Ahmed, & Keegan Kelly

June 2019 marked the tenth year of economic expansion, following the end of the Great Recession. As of July, the current cycle has toppled the previous record held by the March 1991 to March 2001 period as the longest expansionary period of the postwar era. 

This whitepaper provides an overview of the economy’s performance over the last ten years and assesses how commercial real estate fundamentals and financing have performed over the period. This paper was originally published in the June 2019 edition of CRE Finance World.
