GDP: Three Takes

by Calculated Risk on 7/29/2005 03:11:00 PM

Dr. Duy considers how the FED will review the GDP data: Fed Watch: A Week of Data That Point to More Tightening ...

And Dr. Hamilton presents: New GDP data and recession probabilities

And pgl is reasonably positive on GDP: Strong Fixed Investment Demand Growth.

Three interesting views.

For those with positive views on the economy, there is nothing in this report that will change their opinion. For those that are negative on the economy (because of the housing bubble, current account and fiscal deficits, etc.), there is nothing in this report that will sway them either.
