Testimonial

"eerily accurate"
- National Public Radio
ECRI can justify a certain smugness now that business cycles are back in fashion. The institute called the last two recessions and the current recovery months ahead of the pack.
- Harvard Business Review
No one speaks with more authority about the economy's turning points.
- Fortune Magazine
ECRI [is] the most accurate forecasting institution in the world.
- Sydney Morning Herald
I find that ECRI’s historical knowledge of economic cycles and data is almost as important to me as your indicators of future cycles.
- ECRI Professional Member
ECRI has had a very stellar record. They've been making pretty bold calls and going against the conventional wisdom. So far their record has been one of the most impressive, and has been written up in the press as well as talked about in policy circles.
- IMF
