International Unrest and the Economy

Jim Lowell also discussed the latest job figures in Mass.

The past week has been dominated by international unrest and tragedy in Israel and the Gaza Strip, in addition to Ukraine, respectively.

How do these events affect the markets in the long and short term?

Jim Lowell, Chief Investment Officer at Adviser Investments & Editor of joined NECN to discuss.

“The big investment take away is that the world remains an unsettled place. The markets are not an unsettled place,” Lowell explained. “As long as the fundamentals are okay, as long as we’re seeing small growth, not no growth, here in particular, I think that any sort of pull back creates a buying opportunity for truly long-term investors.”

In addition, Lowell talked about the latest jobless figures in Massachusetts and what they suggest about our economic future.
