TAG Industrial Watch: April 30, 2022

As observed in our Industrial Watch magazine published in January, the economy is once again showing signs of stagflation. This week, the financial community was surprised by news of a 1.4% drop in Gross Domestic Product during the first quarter (CNBC). While most experts are busy dismissing the bad news, the second quarter is already setting up to be much weaker as higher interest rates begin to weigh on America’s easy money-dependent economy. Although we are likely in the midst of the next recession, there is a silver lining, albeit unsustainable, for the industrial real estate market. Despite dragging down GDP, the 20.5 percent growth rate in imported goods is great news for the industrial market that relies heavily on the storage and distribution of foreign-made products.
