Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon believes that the U.S. will likely experience a recession in 2023. “Generally, when you find yourself in an economic scenario like this where inflation is embedded, it’s very hard to get out of it without a real economic slowdown,” he said. Other experts are sounding warning bells as well. In a recent analysis, portfolio manager Dan Niles said he believes that Q1 will be pretty rough for the markets.

Wall Street’s Top Stars Got Blindsided by 2022 Market Collapse

Marko Kolanovic and John Stoltzfus, two of the loudest stock bulls on all of Wall Street, were convinced of one thing at the outset of 2022: The Federal Reserve would go slow, very slow, with its plan to lift interest rates. Nevermind that inflation had already soared to its highest level in four decades. The rate increases, they said, would come in increments so small that financial markets would barely feel them.

And Nouriel Roubini, professor emeritus at New York University’s Stern School of Business and the CEO of Roubini Macro Associates, even told Fortune that a “variant of another Great Depression” could be on the way as the global economy grapples with a string of interconnected “MegaThreats.” But Goldman Sachs’ economists are standing by their optimistic outlook for the U.S. economy, even if their CEO isn’t.
