2 Overview US economy has momentum at the start of 2017 Rebound in energy-sector capital spending Strong gains in single-family housing permits Orders and shipments of core capital goods are growing again January jobs gains were much improved Inflation is picking up signaling improved growth in the economy One temporary headwind however is continuation of inventory drawdown in the first half of the year Signals are more mixed in Mississippi Employment slowed considerably in the 4 th quarter Income growth appears to have likewise slowed in the 4 th quarter Transfers to GF have been weak, especially sales & income tax which are perhaps the revenue sources most closely connected to economic activity Building permits are improving Manufacturing workweek length remains high Initial unemployment claims continue to decline February 2017 MS University Research Center, IHL 2

3 Annualized quarterly Growth Annual Growth Growth in Real GDP in US 6.0% 5.0% 4.0% 3.0% 2.0% 1.0% 0.0% -1.0% -2.0% The swing from 3.5% in the 3 rd qtr to 1.9% in the 4 th was due largely to soybean export volatility. Without this volatility, growth would have been around 2.6% in the 3 rd and 4 th qtr. 1.4% 0.8% 2010q1 2011q1 2012q1 2013q1 2014q1 2015q1 2016q1 3.5% 1.9% 6.0% 4.0% 2.0% 4.1% 1.0% 1.8% 2.8% 3.8% 3.3% 2.7% 1.8% 2.5% 1.6% 2.2% 1.7% 2.4% 2.6% 1.6% 0.0% -2.0% -4.0% -0.3% -2.8% February 2017 MS University Research Center, IHL 3

4 US Real GDP Growth is Slowing 25.0% 20.0% 15.0% 10.0% Growth during the last expansion ( ) was 3.2% Average growth between period was 2.1%. We have not experienced a 3.0% growth rate since 2005 Reasons: increased interdependence of international economies, high debt levels, aging population/demographic trends. Implications: more frequent recessions. 5.0% 0.0% -5.0% -10.0% -15.0% Annual Growth Avg. Growth During Expansion Yrs, By Decade February 2017 MS University Research Center, IHL 4

February 2017 MS University Research Center, IHL 5

6 Housing Trends People are renting rather than buying Reflects modest income growth Household formation is down During boom years young adults were buying Fueled by stronger income growth & easy mortgages After bust young adults started living with others Due in part to high student load debt & decreased job opportunities At some point household formation will again track population growth & boost housing February 2017 MS University Research Center, IHL 6

Christmas sales struggled to meet expectations reaching near or only slightly above last year. This is a bit surprising given the increased optimism.

20 Index 2004=100 MS Index of Leading Indicators The MSLI declined in the summer of 2016 before modestly improving in the last quarter. Much of this improvement can be attributed to national indicators rather than MS. We then do not expect any significant change in the State s economy in the short-term. 80 Jan-14 Jan-15 Jan-16 The Mississippi Index of Leading Indicators reflects economic conditions expected for the coming months. The index is constructed by the University Research Center and indexed to There are 7 components of the Index: MS Initial Unemployment Claims; MS Income Tax Withholdings; MS Value of Residential Building Permits; MS MFG Employment Intensity Index; ISM Index of US MFG Activity; US Consumer Expectations Index and US Retail Sales.

25 Workforce Participation Trends Participation has fallen in recent years for both the US and MS The gap between MS & US participation rate is highest among year-olds & year-olds MS lower participation rate due in a large part to higher incidence of disability Census shows 10% of working age population in MS is disabled & not in the work force; in the US the rate is 6%. The state s higher rate translates into over 70 thousand people.

45 Recap: US Economy has momentum in 2017 Risk of recession remains low MS has struggled since the great Recession is the 1 st time the state has experienced 2 years of consecutive growth since the recession The strong headline growth of 2016 was driven by ag volatility which will shave off growth in 2017 Growth in 2017 however will be more widespread and will continue into 2018 at a modest pace. Despite a modest forecast, revenues have disappointed in FY February 2017 MS University Research Center, IHL 45
