Dallas Fed President Robert Kaplan said that they forecast the economy to grow by about 2% in 2020 and expect the business investment to remain sluggish.
"The consumer is strong, the job market is historically tight and the unemployment rate could tick down a little bit," Kaplan noted and added that the technology disruption could continue to mute inflation.
As of writing, the US Dollar Index, which tracks the USD's performance against a basket of six major currencies, was down 0.22% on the day at 97.18.
"The gross domestic product (GDP) growth is critically fueled by workforce growth and workforce growth is declining," Kaplan said.
