Collapsing U.S. GDP Growth Belies Rosey Forecasts

July 30th, 2016|0 Comments

Yesterday we got the government’s first estimate of Q2 GDP
Of course all of the pundits were looking for a big rebound from the very week 1.1% growth that the government claimed was reported in Q1
In fact, the consensus range went from a low of 2.2% to as high as 3.4%, so a lot of optimism, going into Friday’s release
When we got the number, everybody was surprised that the number was only 1.2% – substantially below even the lowest estimate
In fact, adding insult to injury, they made a lot of revisions to prior numbers; some up, some down going back a […]

Wayne ChaversGary Johnson is a closet Leftist. He is the reason why the Libertarian party will never be considered legitimate.1 day ago   ·  86
Harman Singh ParmarI like Gary Johnson, but I think the libertarians need to support Trump this election cycle, to save the country from the globalists that are building towards a new world order.1 day ago   ·  29
Nick MooreGary Johnson is a fake libertarian looking to derail Trump this year just so the party can get federal funds, which by the way, is against the principles of libertarianism. He also has poor moral character, leaving his wife during her very severe bout with heart disease.1 day ago   ·  11
Athena VatranoIf Gary Johnson were elected President he would take us back to the policies of the 1800s and cause the kind of generational great depression that the right wing zealots have been hoping for. If I were Johnson I would skip the debates and keep the antiquated policy ideas quiet.1 day ago   ·  10
Dav JebPeter, gary johnson is for open borders. If you want to have a constitutional republic, you can't keep bringing in people who don't want it, it's as simple as that. Had I known johnson was for open borders i wouldn't have voted for him int he primaries :(1 day ago   ·  3
Chris KibodeauxIf you want higher taxes, socialism, open borders, gun control and are happy with the direction of America then you should vote for Gary Johnson or Hillary Clinton. Either way, when Hillary is in The White House we'll all feel the Johnson.1 day ago   ·  4
John LeStargeGary Johnson wants to cut social security and medicare. He's also for amnesty for illegals and TPP. No thanks!1 day ago   ·  25
David HoffmanGary Johnson doesn't attack Hillary and all he does is attack Trump. I would like him in the debates but I think he is a bias hack towards Trump out of the 2. So I would not want to see him right now.1 day ago   ·  9
Samuel AdamsJohnson s a globalist puppet just as obuzzard is. He is not worth considering even for dog catcher. Agenda21 is strong in New Mexico. He could have at least slowed it down. Albuquerque police are no better than East German Stazi. Bernalillo county is anti Constitution. This douche bag is pro TPP. Wants open borders. He is a candidate for a charge of treason though.1 day ago   ·  4
Jack KirraneIf you call yourself a "libertarian" and don't take any positions on immigration your either a coward or stupid. Anyone with an interest in small government knows that mass immigration of Mexicans makes small government (as well as many other things) an impossibility. Trump is a better candidate towards the interests of liberty than this milk-toast coward is.10 hours ago   ·  1
Damon Doranno it would be great to see Peter in the debates..Clinton would be his new Scott Nations.1 day ago   ·  2
Rob GoodmanJust when I think you're the smartest SOB around, you go & do this. Maybe better than Hitlery, but my God dude, this guy calls Trump a racist for being anti TPP...Talk to me Goose, just being polite?1 day ago   ·  4
Mike ZourdosPeter, this is great, but I would much rather see you in the debates, you would be an intellectual giant.14 hours ago
Richard A Patrie Jr.This is great. Half of you monkeys call libertarians Democrats, and the other half say it's a rehash of the GOP. Grab your balls and take control of your lives. Making decisions for yourself is easier than you think.1 day ago   ·  1

Taylor BrinkmanTell him to shut up about mental health checks for buying guns and I'll think about it, until then, I agree with Wayne Chavers1 day ago   ·  1
Douglas Streeter#1 Gary cant win! #2 Even if he did win do you think any of his libertarian policies to downsize government would be implemented? #3 Most Libertatians would vote Republican. #4 A vote for Johnson is a vote for Hitlery! Seeya in November.11 hours ago
Bryant MeldrumMr Johnson needs to be more pro-active in getting his message out.1 day ago   ·  1
Daniel JanczukJohnson is liberal he's not libertarian, sold out principles long ago running his private prison complex when he was governor bunch of traitors.10 hours ago
