The economy is thawing out

  • Economic growth is poised for some solid gains
  • The housing and labor markets are the keys to this improvement
  • Consumer sentiment will get a boost from gains in the housing and labor markets
  • Consumer spending will benefit from job gains and improved sentiment, setting the stage for further job growth throughout the spring and summer
  • The current path suggests increased business investment for the remainder of the year
