2nd Quarter U.S. GDP Growth

FFC is forecasting real U.S. GDP growth will be 2.3% for the second quarter of 2015.  However, the BEA is making a number of improvements and revisions to the GDP numbers in the upcoming July release.  The revisions may skew the GDP numbers to the high side, meaning the GDP growth posted with the July revisions will probably be higher than 2.3%.

FFC's own, internal measures of real economic growth put the U.S. real economic growth rate at close to zero in the second quarter of 2015.

2014 Global Economic Growth

FFC's estimate of global economic growth for 2014 is 0.9%, down from 1.8% in 2013.  U.S. economic growth for 2014 is estimated at 1.1%.  China's growth for 2014 is estimated at 2.6%, down from 3.7% in 2013.

As you may notice, these growth numbers are much lower than the GDP growth rates published elsewhere.
