U.S. Economic Growth for 2014

FFC's estimate of U.S. real economic growth for 2014 is 1.1%.  By contrast, the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis' estimate of U.S. real GDP growth for 2014 is 2.4%.

We believe the discrepancy between these two estimates lies in the under-reporting of the GDP deflator used by the BEA.

The good news is both estimates show positive growth for the U.S. economy in 2014.
