Abacus Consulting develops CaixaBank Research’s Real-Time Economics Portal

CaixaBank Research has presented today to the press the new data portal ‘Economy in real time’ that has been developed in collaboration with the companies Prodigioso Volcán and Abacus Consulting. The website is a pioneer bet in our country to monopolize the evolution of the economy through indicators of consumption, housing, tourism, wages and inequality.

The auditorium was attended by specialized journalists from the main national media (El Pais, La Vanguardia, El Periódico…) who had the opportunity to ask the analysts questions about the portal itself and about the economic forecasts for this year and next year.
