A series of crosscurrents in public health, public policy and economics will shape growth conditions across the American economy during the year ahead. The juxtaposition of an intensifying pandemic and the encouraging developments in the race to find a vaccine is the perfect metaphor for growth over the next year. We are all waiting for a vaccine, yet we must still gauge the probabilities of recovery and figure out how to re-imagine our businesses during a time of changing technology, telework and automation.

In this issue, we examine the economic outlook for 2021, the end of select COVID-19-era lending programs, minimum wage, health care provider funding challenges and middle market technology trends amid reopening and recovery efforts. Download the full report.
