NABE: Majority Want Employers To Require COVID-19 Vaccinations

Aug. 27, 2021
NABE releases August 2021 Economic Policy Survey.

According to the August 2021 NABE Economic Policy Survey, a semi-annual report from the National Association for Business Economics, nearly eight in ten respondents say they want employers to require employees be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before returning to the workplace. Only one-quarter of respondents indicate that their employers are making vaccination a requirement. In addition, 69% of panelists think the federal government should provide a standard document that individuals can carry and certify that they are vaccinated against COVID-19.

Respondents are split on whether fiscal and monetary policies are “too stimulative” or “about right,” according to NABE. “Nearly two-thirds of respondents believe that the Federal Reserve will be able to achieve its goal of inflation averaging 2% over time,” adds Survey Chair Ilan Kolet, institutional portfolio manager, Fidelity Investments, “And more than half of respondents believe that inflation risks are to the upside. Almost three-fourths of the respondents believe the Fed should raise interest rates by the end of 2022.”
