Media Inquiries

Irvine, CA, July 18, 2023 – Origence, the leading lending technology solutions provider for credit unions, is hosting a free webcast entitled “The US Economy: Rising Rates, Real Risks, and Recession?” with special guest speaker, economist Elliot Eisenberg on July 27, 2023, at time 11 am PDT.

With 2023 Q2 GDP looking surprisingly strong at about two percent, and consumer spending holding up due to a combination of pent-up demand for services and excess COVID savings suggests that the remaining of 2023 should be good. However, inflation, particularly core inflation, continues to remain high. In this session, Eisenberg dives into what is expected for the rest of 2023 and beyond.

Eisenberg’s session will include:

  • GDP updates
  • Inflation
  • Rising interest rates
  • The potential to avoid recession
  • Lending implications

“We are excited to make the knowledge and expertise of Elliot Eisenberg available to credit unions across the country once again,” said Neetu Bhagat, chief financial officer, Origence. “Elliot shares a great deal of information that is helpful in guiding institutions during these complex times. Our hope is to stimulate conversations, empower credit unions with a deeper understanding and inspire innovative approaches to the economic challenges we face today.”
