Economy Grows at 4.1%, Fastest Quarterly Rate Since 2014
— Open Blogger

Trump has set 3.0% growth for the full year as a goal, which would have been likely if the quarterly rate had been 4.2%. But at 4.1%, economists now say 2.8% yearly growth is most likely.

Still, within striking distance, certainly.

t Anthony Chan breaks down the second-quarter GDP and the outlook for the U.S. economy.
U.S. gross domestic product advanced by 4.1% in the second quarter, the fastest pace of economic expansion since 2014 – when third-quarter growth reached 5.2%.

Continue Reading Below

After the GDP report was released President Trump tweeted, "Great GDP numbers just released." In a press conference at the White House Trump said annual GDP growth "will be over 3%."

The Trump administration has implemented pro-growth policies, including a sweeping tax reform package meant to bolster businesses. The last time annual GDP growth was above 3% was in 2005 when it came in at 3.3%. George W. Bush was president when the U.S. economy hit this growth rate. The best annual GDP reading under President Barack Obama was 2.9%.

Back in the 90s, Jonah Goldberg was on one of those panel discussion shows with a fat ass lefty bitch by the name of Julianne Malvaux (sp?) who came right out and said she hoped Clarence Thomas would eat a bunch of greasy, fatty foods and die an early death of heart disease like so many other black men. Goldberg was speechless.

That may have been a watershed moment.

29 Why do unexpected things keep happening to CNN? In darker news, though, I do fear for the midterms. The Republicans in congress seem to be doing their all to keep from winning. How about a compromise for August recess. They can have time off, all month. But they must stay in DC, in government provided housing (with 24/7 curfew calls). Without A/C. Either that, or they must go to San Francisco and clean the streets. With their tongues. That way they'd replenish the store of all they've been spewing.

Posted by: LGoPs at July 27, 2018 12:34 PM (RRchO)



There is a difference (not just a factor of 4) between "quarterly" GDP and "annual" GDP.



Hopefully Q2 gets revised upwards.  And with the tax cut and that proverbial "back to school" shopping - Q3 is at least 3.5 - 4%.   I don't buy some people talking about the Europeans (see export/import) stocking up on goods before the tariffs took / take effect - having a large impact on Q2.  Q2 ended 30-Jun and certainly Trump was talking about tariffs.  But they'd have had to order a boat load of stuff in late April / May for it to have a material effect on Q2.

83 Barry's economy was always poised to do something; the Donald's economy actually jumps. I've said it before: the investigations, the backstabbing, the Twitter follies, all of this pales in importance before the economy as far as most Americans are concerned. The key questions are: 1. Am I working? B. Are my family members working? III. Are we doing better? Answer these "yes" and you're doing well politically.

87 The economy was poised to take off, once someone lifted the weight of all those regulations off. And it helped that people got to keep a bit more of their own money. Trump has one of the best economic teams ever and the work they are doing is not getting a lot of coverage. CTH does a nice job of explaining what they are doing.

120 OT Willowed comment from last thread: I encourage everyone to read this article. It's at Gizmodo, but don't let that discourage you. There's a lot to summarize, but bear with me. A Polish immigrant to the US who became a realtor is online arguing with the crazies. Remember the freakout about the young woman who took a cheerful selfie when she was at Auschwitz? The realtor was arguing with them, basically saying they need to calm down. Two different strangers independently decided to dox her, then one posted a false story on "She's a homewrecker" claiming the realtor slept with her husband in a house she was supposed to be showing them. That story got reposted on her Re/Max review site. After hundreds of thousands in lost wages and legal bills, the realtor discovers the identity of the poster and another person who decided to pile on. She got them to desist, but "She's a homewrecker" refuses to take the post down. https://preview.tinyurl.com/y6uwtll8 I think most here know they need to be careful about OPSEC, but I'm going to remind you to stay vigilant anyway.

Posted by: Calm Mentor at July 27, 2018 01:09 PM (b3Pum)


Back to school spending is roughly the same every year and the tax cuts won't have much of an effect if $billions were rushed out the door last month for import/export to beat the new tariffs.  Not only will the tariffs make a dent but that economic activity squeezed into Q2 will be missing from Q3.


I'm not predicting horrible Q3 numbers, I'm only suggesting expectations be set properly so that a growth number in the 2%'s for Q3 won't be spun as a huge decline instead of what it is, more growth added to continued upward trend.

"I think you are forgetting about back to school spending, which is pretty big. See also: full effect of tax cuts."  calm
numbers are year over year I think, so it will be compared to last school spending time.

If Europe drops tariffs (as hinted/agreed) then perhaps numbers would go up in response, instead of down ... hard to say.  But if there was some inventory build up in advance of expected tariffs, that could depress the next quarter ... hard to find good analysis that is politics free.

310 Paul Krugman - The lawn gnome of economics the day after Trump won:

It really does now look like President Donald J. Trump, and markets are plunging. When might we expect them to recover?

The disaster for America and the world has so many aspects that the economic ramifications are way down my list of things to fear.

Still, I guess people want an answer: If the question is when markets will recover, a first-pass answer is never.

Under any circumstances, putting an irresponsible, ignorant man who takes his advice from all the wrong people in charge of the nation with the world’s most important economy would be very bad news. What makes it especially bad right now, however, is the fundamentally fragile state much of the world is still in, eight years after the great financial crisis.

Now comes the mother of all adverse effects — and what it brings with it is a regime that will be ignorant of economic policy and hostile to any effort to make it work. Effective fiscal support for the Fed? Not a chance. In fact, you can bet that the Fed will lose its independence, and be bullied by cranks.

So we are very probably looking at a global recession, with no end in sight. I suppose we could get lucky somehow. But on economics, as on everything else, a terrible thing has just happened.

It's quite a feat, and a welcome one, since the Dems use these social issues to smear the GOP as old, white prudes who want to turn back the clock to the 50's. The president typically did not have much to he could do about things like abortion, marriage, but then the Left made it the government's business through PP funding, Obamacare and so on.

They showed him the door.

359 Maybe Trump intentionally made a bombastic estimate of 5% in order to "humanize" his image? If he keeps Hulk-smashing every issue he turns his attention to, the general not-paying-attention public will start to get suspicious. If he can be wrong every once in a while about something, then the general cavalcade of asskickery seems more plausible. As a corollary: It shows emotionally that he's willing to bet big on America, and not be timid or underestimate the economy. It shows strength, vigor, and hope.

There have already been more arrests for these crimes under Trump than the entire 8 years under Obama. Further, the wall and the controversial policy of separating "families" who crossed the border illegally is to cut off human trafficking at the knees.

Last thing I saw was Sanders was saying it was all a Republican hit job because the person requesting the investigation happened to be a Republican party local official, although he made the complaint in some role as a representative of the local Diocese. For those that don't know, the Diocese had prime lakefront property they had to sell off to pay sexual abuse claims. Mrs. Sanders swooped in to pick up the land for Burlington College, and both the Diocese and a local bank were hurt when the college could not pay.

394 "o unless I'm missing something, accelerated imports (regardless of item) would detract from GDP, not add to it. Posted by: rhomboid

right ... if we imported ahead of the tariff it decreased GDP
if Europe agreed to buy more soybeans (I think they did just two days ago) ... that will increase GDP this quarter (Q3)

I was probably confused/confusing on inventory build up .. it depends who was avoiding what tariff, or what expected tariff (which may become them dropping tariffs, not us adding tariffs).  If they respond with dropping tariffs (and we don't add them) ... that also will help future GDP.

Mrs. Sanders swooped in to pick up the land for Burlington College, and both the Diocese and a local bank were hurt when the college could not pay. Wasn't Mrs. Sanders also kind of mean and entitled? Seem to recall she was sketchy with the college funds in general, and was spiteful with anyone who disagreed with her.

She asked me how I, a Christian, could support Trump, who cheated on his wives, when I condemned Clinton for doing the same thing. I told her actions speak louder than words, and that through Jesus Christ and true repentance, people can change. Discussion pretty much ended after that...oh well. I am heartened by the things that Trump is doing. But I put my faith in Christ, not man; as in the days of Noah, people will go about their business and thinking that all is well...until the deluge. Enough sermonizing from me...gotta finish getting ready for a road trip. Y'all have a blessed one.

He might be living the high life right now, but when things come crashing down, he's going to find that he never had a truly positive relationship that he can fall back on.

Posted by: Kyle at July 27, 2018 09:19 AM (0HXB0)

440 35 Any growth such as it was with Obama was due to quantitative easing, the recalculation of GDP to include nebulous garbage like intellectual property and did NOT result in any real economic activity from the private sector. I call bullshit on anyone who defends Obama's record. Posted by: J.J. Sefton at July 27, 2018 12:38 PM (G4W16) --- Not what you're taking about, but: My understanding is that the Obama "Stimulus" ($1 trillion) largely went to bail out union pension funds. In the U.S. economy, the multiplier effect, i.e. dollars of economic activity resulting from a dollar spent, is generally thought to be about $2. The estimated multipler for the Stimulus was $0.75. That could be seen as an achievement of some sort, I suppose. It was like the money was poured onto sand and disappeared into the ground.
