2016 Economic data

United States Economic Growth

Economic growth is forecast to cool further in H2. An uncertain global environment and the back-and-forth with China will continue to hinder investment in the short-term, drag on manufacturing and exports and could creep into consumer sentiment. Lower borrowing costs and higher fiscal spending following the increase in the debt ceiling should help counter the slowdown. FocusEconomics panelists see GDP expanding 2.3% in 2019 and 1.6% in 2020, which is down 0.1 percentage points from last month’s forecast.
