The Top Line: 1.4 Percent GDP Growth in Q2

Sep 30, 2016

The Top Line The U.S. economy expanded by 1.4 percent in Q2, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis’ third estimate. In comparison, Q1 growth was just 0.8 percent. Robust consumer spending, positive net exports, and upwardly revised business investment were somewhat offset by weak residential investment and a decline in government spending. In addition, a sharp reduction in inventories subtracted 1.16 percentage points from GDP.
