Each year, UGA's agricultural economists develop a comprehensive overview to help various sectors of the agriculture industry navigate the year ahead. As Georgia's land-grant university, the University of Georgia conducts cutting-edge research on critical and emerging issues that are important to the agriculture industry. From this research, UGA provides the best information and education available to producers and constituents to equip them with knowledge and decision-making tools for their businesses. The overall U.S. outlook projections include: 1. In 2023, the postpandemic expansion will end, and a mild recession will begin. 2. The 2023 recession will be mild and short. 3. Tight monetary policy because of high inflation is the main reason to expect a recession. Energy price shocks are a second reason to expect a recession. 4. Georgia’s economy will do better than the U.S. economy as a whole. 5. Economic development projects will provide a solid push to Georgia’s economy.
