Prospects for the US economy to end 2019.
The strong US labour market and low borrowing costs for businesses and individuals are helping to sustain the decade-long economic expansion. GDP grew by more than 3% in January-March, the third quarter out of four in which it was above 3%. The lacklustre housing market, softening manufacturing sector and rising consumer financial stress may dampen economic growth in the rest of 2019, taking it to 2.3-2.5% for the year.
