  2. Q1 GDP Grows at 2.2 percent, Private Sector at 2.8% US GDP growth slowed to 2.2% in Q1 2012, down from 3% in Q4 2011, according to the advance estimate from the BEA The private sector grew at 2.8% It was the 11th consecutive quarter of growth The advance estimate is based on partial data and is often substantially revised Posted April 28, 2012 on Ed Dolan’s Econ Blog http://dolanecon.blogspot.com
  3. Expansion Continues According to standard business cycle terminology, the recession phase of the business cycle is the downward movement of GDP from its previous peak The recovery phase is the upward movement from the trough (low point) of the recession and continues until GDP again reaches its previous peak. Once GDP moves above its previous peak, the expansion phase begins. Q1 2012 GDP was solidly above pre- recession peak, continuing the expansion that the economy entered in Q3 2011 Posted April 28, 2012 on Ed Dolan’s Econ Blog http://dolanecon.blogspot.com

  6. Nominal GDP A Little Above Trend, Gap Remains Large Q1 nominal GDP (NGDP) growth was 3.8% (quarterly growth stated as annual rate), the same as in Q4 NGDP growth consisted of 2.2% real growth and 1.6% inflation An increasing number of economists focus on NGDP growth as a key policy target. Real potential GDP growth has averaged about 2.3 percent over the past 10 years. Adding 2 percent for the Fed’s target rate of inflation gives 4.3 percent. NGDP targeters could thus make a case for a more stimulative policy Posted April 28, 2012 on Ed Dolan’s Econ Blog http://dolanecon.blogspot.com
