6 Macro Snapshot From 1987-2000, only 2 corrections - don’t hold your breath. US is leaving Europe in the dust, and it may be Europe that is holding commodities and rates back. Most pullbacks at 4%, None over 8%


8 Costs Contained via ACA Lower cost growth boosts other sectors -> + GDP Growth Insurance access and lower costs reduces home foreclosures Inflation stays low since a key driver is in check Health Care Inflation = under 2% source: HiddenLevers, CBOCBO Healthcare IT spending keeps rising sharply

9 BAD: Costs Contained Despite ACA source: HiddenLevers Health Care Inflation = 2% Markets not impacted if costs held in check ACA insurance expansion could fail if GOP unwinds it Both GOP and Dems will keep ACA cost cuts Mild GDP impact if health care policy in disarray

11 Scenario: Obamacare Good Costs Contained via ACA Neutral/Bad Costs Contained Despite ACA Ugly Runaway Costs If the ACA achieves its goals, healthcare inflation will decline, boosting growth in other sectors. If healthcare costs remain low despite other failings in the ACA, markets will be relatively un- impacted. Runaway healthcare costs would hit both corporate and govt. budgets, leading to a drop in GDP growth and harder times for healthcare consumers.

17 ACA – Job Market Impact source: Wall Street Journal, Economics Policy Institute, Washington Post, PBSWall Street JournalEconomics Policy InstituteWashington PostPBS PROPONENTS: ACA = WAGE GROWTHSKEPTICS: ACA = WAGE DECLINE Falling health care costs for employers would be passed on to employees Increasing labor costs would reduce take- home pay ACA reduces labor supply, wages must rise. Real wages would need to be cut to keep existing company insurance plans. Low wage workers have no incentive to climb up – they’ll lose ACA benefits Congressional Budget Office ACA = 2 million to quit jobs or cut hours
