GDP

Apr 30, 2014 — First-quarter GDP fell to just 0.1 percent, according to the latest figures from the Bureau of Economic Analysis, which blamed much of the slowing on weather-related factors.
Comments |
Mar 27, 2014 — The news about both last quarter and last week is positive. Fewer people signed up for unemployment insurance last week, and consumer spending was stronger than previously thought in late 2013.
Comments |
Feb 28, 2014 — Consumer spending wasn't as strong in the fourth quarter as first estimated. So, it's now thought that GDP grew at a 2.4 percent annual rate, not the earlier estimate of 3.2 percent.
Comments |
Jan 30, 2014 — The nation's gross domestic product grew at a 3.2 percent annual rate, according to a preliminary estimate. That's solid growth and follows an even stronger third quarter. But claims for unemployment insurance rose last week.
Comments |
Dec 20, 2013 — Growth was stronger than thought in the third quarter, the Bureau of Economic Analysis says. It now estimates that gross domestic product grew at a 4.1 percent annual rate. That's the best pace since late 2011.
Comments |
Dec 5, 2013 — U.S. real gross domestic product rose from a 2.5 percent gain in the second quarter. And the number of people filing first-time claims for unemployment insurance fell to 298,000 last week.
Comments |
Nov 7, 2013 — Economists thought the government would say the economy slowed. But the initial estimate shows a slight pickup from the 2.5 percent pace of the second quarter.
Comments |
Oct 17, 2013 — Although a debt default has been at least temporarily averted, the knock-on effect for the economy will still bite.
Comments |
Sep 26, 2013 — Both reports add to evidence that the U.S. economy continues to chug along. It's estimated that gross domestic product rose at a 2.5 percent annual rate in the second quarter. Meanwhile, claims for unemployment insurance remain near a six-year low.
Comments |
Aug 29, 2013 — There's been a sharp upward revision in the estimate of how fast gross domestic product expanded. Stronger exports helped push GDP up at a 2.5 percent annual rate.
