The US GDP is still growing at a robust 2.5% annual rate despite the Deepsea Horizon oil spill.
The economy expanded at a solid 0.7% pace in the third quarter, which is down from the 2.9% pace it posted in the previous three quarters.
That’s because the economy expanded a healthy 2.7%, or 3.2%, in the fourth quarter, while GDP in the year-ago quarter was a healthy 0.5%.
The US economy expanded by an average of 3.6% in the second quarter of the year.
The GDP growth rate of 2.3% was far better than the growth rate in the first quarter, when the economy shrank by 2.2%.
In the fourth-quarter, the unemployment rate was 4.3%, up from 3.3%.
The Federal Reserve’s key interest rate remains at a historic low, which means that the economy is not yet at full employment.
But the economy still grew at a healthy 1.8% pace.
What are the trends?
The economy is showing signs of recovering.
The GDP growth has been good and there are signs that there are some signs of a slowdown in the economy.
But there is a lot more to do to recover.
There is still a long way to go.
First, we need to find jobs.
For the past year, the jobs market has been in a recession.
Unemployment has risen from 7.4% in September 2017 to 9.4%.
A lot of Americans are out of work.
This means that we have a lot to do before the unemployment number starts to fall.
Then we need better incentives for employers to create jobs.
This is particularly important because the government will need to make more investments in infrastructure to help workers get back on their feet.
These investments will be critical in ensuring the economic recovery in the coming years.
Finally, we should get our economy back to full employment and create a strong job market.
It’s important to remember that the recovery from the spill is still very much a work in progress.
And as with any recovery, we must not lose sight of the big picture: We need to get our jobs back to the United States and help create jobs for all Americans.
Watch this space.
