  • Two other factors are likely to aid growth in the near term. 4 One is inventory investment. Throughout the current recession, businesses have reduced inventory investment substantially. Businesses have chosen to curtail production and run down existing stocks.

Renewed inventory investment should spur production and job creation throughout the economy.

  • Insurers anticipate this adverse job turnover dynamic. Nevertheless, insurers are expected to renew policies and may be reluctant or prohibited from increasing premiums rapidly. As a result, offered premiums for covering a previously uninsured firm are well above the initial expected costs for the firm’s worker’s current age and gender distributions.
