An Economic Outlook with Ken Entenmann, Chief Economist at NBT Bank
Ken Entenmann, Senior Vice President, Chief Investment Office and Chief Economist at NBT Bank, sits down with MEREDA President Craig Young and Senior Director of Affordable Housing at NBT Bank Kim Twitchell (formerly Maine Regional President of NBT Bank) for the tenth episode of MEREDA Matters – the podcast that puts you in the room with the people who are driving responsible development in Maine. The conversation begins with Entenmann sharing his career path and why he loves economics. The group then delves into a discussion on the resiliency of the U.S. economy and the important factors impacting the global economy right now such as inflation and the lingering effects of the pandemic. Entenmann also includes his perspective on the effect of renewable energy for energy prices. The discussion continues as the group looks at how the office market has been faring, both nationally and in Southern Maine. Entenmann shares his thoughts on whether there is a housing bubble, if current interest rates are the new normal, and whether he sees a recession on the horizon.
