Extrapolating trends from 2019 enabled Gregorio to make close predictions on U.S. retail sales and interest rates.
Gregorio De Giuli (ASM 12th Grader) participated in John Dorfman's Economic Forecasting Contest and won! Contestants must predict six variables: U.S. gross domestic product, inflation, interest rates, the price of oil, U.S. retail sales, and the U.S. unemployment rate. Of all who participated Gregorio was able to make the closest predictions.
Gregorio plans to study Economics in college, at Esade University in Barcelona. We are all rooting for him to get in this spring!
