***The Economy in 2019 - Finding the Dark Cloud Behind that Silver Lining***

The past year has been a very successful one by most measures - low unemployment, solid growth, mostly solid stock market, low inflation. But there have been signs that this business cycle may be coming to an end as important sectors slow dramatically, labor shortages become acute, inflation starts to ramp up and uncertainty regarding trade weighs on the markets. What can reasonably be expected in 2019 and what factors will end up driving the progress of the economy in what promises to be another tumultuous year?
