  1. Florence to Batter U.S. Data But Harm to Economy Likely SmallRead the original story w/Photo

    Sep 12, 2018 | Bloomberg

    The economic impact of Hurricane Florence is unlikely to be large but could muddle U.S. data for months, judging from past experience. Last year, Hurricanes Harvey and Irma constrained activity in the third quarter of 2017 and sparked rebuilding later in the year and well into 2018, making it hard to get an accurate and timely assessment of the impact on quarterly gross domestic product growth.

    Aug 10, 2018 | Bloomberg

    Donald Trump has presided over an accelerating economy and the lowest unemployment in years, but American workers still aren't seeing it U.S. average hourly earnings adjusted for inflation fell 0.2 percent in July from a year earlier, data released on Friday showed, notching the lowest reading since 2012. While inflation isn't high in historical terms, after years of being too low following the 2007-2009 recession, its recent gains are taking a bigger bite out of U.S. paychecks.

    Jul 5, 2018 | Bloomberg

    Companies in the U.S. added fewer workers in June than forecast as a tight and still-solid labor market led to a slower pace of hiring, according to data released Thursday from the ADP Research Institute in Roseland, New Jersey.

    Apr 26, 2018 | Bloomberg

    In laying out plans to ease some constraints imposed on banks after the financial crisis, the Fed is moving to free up tens of billions of dollars for financial institutions to lend to promote faster economic growth.

  7. U.S. Labor Market Back on More Even Keel After Blowout FebruaryRead the original story w/Photo

    Apr 6, 2018 | Bloomberg

    The optics for U.S. payrolls were uninspiring last month without altering the big picture: A tight labor market is helping lift wages and underpinning the Federal Reserve's plan to keep raising interest rates. The return of more seasonable winter weather resulted in some payback, as hiring cooled more than forecast in March following an upwardly revised blowout number in February, Labor Department figures showed Friday.

    Mar 9, 2018 | Bloomberg

    U.S. employers added the most workers since mid-2016 as labor-force participation swelled, while below-forecast wages and a downward revision to January's figure suggest the pay gains that spooked markets last month aren't yet taking hold. Payrolls rose 313,000 in February, compared with the 205,000 median estimate in a survey of economists, and the two prior months were revised higher by 54,000, Labor Department figures showed Friday.

    Mar 1, 2018 | Bloomberg

    On a day when U.S. economic tailwinds were highlighted by the new Federal Reserve chairman and evident in several reports, President Trump said the U.S. will impose tariffs of 25 percent on imported steel and 10 percent on aluminum for "a long period of time." Stocks and Treasury yields tumbled on concern that the move could spark a trade war and hold back the economy, with shares of big exporters such as Boeing Co.

  15. Stock Plunge Unlikely to Dent Economy Unless It Gets Much WorseRead the original story w/Photo

    Feb 5, 2018 | Bloomberg

    Monday's stock-market plunge is unlikely by itself to make a significant dent in a U.S. economy that's enjoying solid gains in spending and hiring, though it could rattle consumer sentiment, which soared after the November 2016 election. The impact on growth, according to economists, will depend on whether the market keeps falling, or otherwise fails to rebound and build on last year's strong performance, which saw the S&P 500 rise 19 percent.

  16. U.S. Economy Doing Just Fine But 3% Growth Will Remain Elusive an hour agoRead the original story w/Photo

    Jan 26, 2018 | Bloomberg

    Despite fourth-quarter U.S. growth missing forecasts, the world's largest economy is doing just fine. The results also underscore just how challenging it will be to reach President Donald Trump's goal of a sustained 3 percent pace. The 2.6 percent annualized gain in gross domestic product, reported by the Commerce Department on Friday, fell short of the Bloomberg survey median projection of 3 percent.

    Jan 26, 2018 | Bloomberg

    The U.S. economy expanded at a slower-than-projected pace in the fourth quarter on drags from trade and inventories, offsetting strength in consumer spending and business investment that signals solid momentum entering 2018. Gross domestic product rose at a 2.6 percent annualized rate after 3.2 percent in the prior period, Commerce Department data showed Friday in Washington.

  18. Can the U.S. Sustain Its 3% Growth Streak?Read the original story w/Photo

    Jan 25, 2018 | Bloomberg

    The U.S. economy probably ended last year with the longest stretch of 3 percent-or-better growth since 2005. The $17 trillion question is, can it keep up this performance this late in the business cycle? Solid consumer spending, accelerating business investment and a housing rebound combined to drive fourth-quarter demand in the world's largest economy. Gross domestic product expanded at a 3 percent annualized rate after 3.2 percent in the third quarter and 3.1 percent in the previous period, according to the Bloomberg survey median ahead of Commerce Department data due Friday.
