Yahoo: Economy In U.S. Expands 4.2%, More Than Previously Forecast

The biggest gain in U.S. business investment in over two years helped the world’s largest economy expand more than previously forecast in the second quarter, raising expectations for the rest of 2014. Gross domestic product, the value of all goods and services produced, rose at a 4.2 percent annualized rate, up from an initial estimate of 4 percent and following a first-quarter contraction, Commerce Department reported today in Washington. Other reports showed the outlook for home sales improved in July, fewer people filed claims (INJCJC) for jobless benefits last week and consumer confidence climbed. Recent data showing American factories are receiving more orders and employment is picking up indicate companies such as General Electric Co. (GE) will probably see demand sustained into the second half of the year. “The recovery is becoming more well-entrenched,” said Scott Brown, chief economist at Raymond James & Associates Inc. in St. Petersburg, Florida, who correctly projected the gain in GDP.

“There is more optimism among businesses about increased demand. The drop in firings is probably helping Americans feel more secure in their jobs. The Bloomberg Consumer Comfort Index rose in the week ended Aug. 24 to the highest level in more than a month as views of household finances advanced to an almost four-month high, another report showed. Household consumption, which accounts for about 70 percent of the economy, grew at a 2.5 percent annualized rate, the same as previously estimated. Automobile sales near an eight-year high bode well for consumer spending and factory production. Consumers’ purchasing power improved, with disposable income adjusted for inflation rising at a 4.2 percent from April through June after a 3.4 percent gain in the first quarter. Gross domestic income, which reflects all the money earned by consumers, businesses and government agencies climbed at a 4.7 percent annualized rate in the second quarter, the most since early 2012. More hiring and stock-market gains that are boosting confidence also are healing household finances, which will help consumer spending. Payrolls in July marked the sixth month of gains exceeding 200,000, the longest such stretch since 1997, according to the Labor Department.

Jason Furman: Second Estimate Of GDP For The Second Quarter Of 2014

1. Real gross domestic product (GDP) increased 4.2 percent at an annual rate in the second quarter of 2014, according to the second estimate from the Bureau of Economic Analysis. The strong second-quarter growth represents a rebound from a first-quarter decline in GDP that largely reflected transitory factors like unusually severe winter weather and a sharp slowdown in inventory investment. Growth in consumer spending and business investment picked up in the second quarter, and residential investment increased following two straight quarters of decline. Additionally, state and local government spending grew at the fastest quarterly rate in five years.

3. Over the last four quarters, real GDP has risen 2.5 percent, faster than the 2.0 percent annualized pace observed over the preceding eight-quarter period. Looking at four- and eight-quarter changes to smooth some of the quarter-to-quarter volatility, it is clear that many components of GDP are showing improvement. The growth rates of consumer spending, business investment and exports have all picked up, and the pace of declines in the Federal sector have moderated a bit. In addition, the State and local government sector has turned positive, after several years of steady cutbacks. One area that has slowed over the last four quarters is residential investment, which is discussed in greater detail in the next point.

    Thanks for the beautiful positive post, NW! Congratulations to Jeff again. I know many of you have mixed feelings about Cory Booker, but he did an excellent job for my Senator, Jeff Merkley, at a fundraiser here where they screened “Street Fight” about Booker’s first (losing) campaign for Mayor of Newark. It reminded me of a couple of episodes of The Wire. Anyway, Cory was gracious and humble.

      Is it just me, or is Cory Booker keeping a low profile now?

      Actually the MSM seems to have completely lost interest in all-things-NJ, while last year at this time it was impossible to escape from hearing about Christie and Booker — but absolute crickets where Barbara Buono was concerned.

    Black man taken to jail for sitting in public area

    At 9:43 a.m. on January 31, police were summoned to the skyway in downtown St. Paul’s First National Bank Building on a report of a man loitering. The video footage shows an officer asking the then-27-year-old man to provide his name.

    “Why do I have to let you know who I am? Who I am isn’t the problem,” the man calmly replies.
    “Because that’s what police do when they get called,” the officer responds.

    The man explains he was sitting in the skyway waiting to pick up his kids at 10 o’clock from the New Horizon Academy school. He says he had gotten off work at Cossetta at 9 a.m.

    He tells the officer, “First off, that’s a public area. And if there’s no sign that [says], ‘This is a private area, you can’t sit here,’ no one can tell me I can’t sit here.”

    “The problem is…” the officer says, before she’s cut off.

    “The problem is I’m black. That’s the problem,” the man interjects. “It really is because I didn’t do anything wrong.”

      It’s amazing how the west coast seems not to exist for the MSM, unless there is an earthquake.

      Everything Richardson said is beyond the pale, but I the most viscerally offensive was to compare the horrific Virginia Tech massacre to gay marriage — in a state whose most populated city is Portland, Oregon.

      Can’t believe that even people in the non-Coastal, non-Interstate 5 corridor portions of the state would vote for him.

He has been very accurate in his political predictions. There are always changes along the way and he takes note of those and adjusts, but he’s been saying he sees no Republican wave. This election is ours. All we have to do is get voters to the polls and people are working hard.

    I don’t know how many here were following the saga of Market Basket : in which employees, some suppliers, and the majority consuming public jointly rebelled against a new take-over CEO who was deemed hostile to workers;

    yes there was also a family feud involved but the employees went on strike to oppose the ouster of a corporate leader who had always taken good care of his employees;

    from the reports, the proposed replacement head (and cousin to the head favored by the employees) sounded a lot like Mitt and the leadership minted at Bain Capital ;

    I am glad that the collective action of the community helped win one for the employees;

    The article says Pres Obama set a deadline for himself that is 3 weeks away. Good article.

    ….As Obama’s staff has examined options during the past two months, they’ve met with at least 21 groups, including representatives of Hispanic, Irish-American, business, labor, agriculture and gay and lesbian organizations, the White House official said.

    ….The principle of prosecutorial discretion that is likely to be the legal linchpin for Obama’s executive action is firmly embedded in law and has long history in immigration enforcement extending back at least to the 1970s, said Stephen Legomsky, former chief counsel of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services at the Department of Homeland Security.

    The idea is that Congress knowingly delegates discretion to set priorities in immigration enforcement to the president because it doesn’t provide enough funding to immediately deport all of the estimated 11.5 million undocumented immigrants in the country, Legomsky said…..

      I have no idea what Ron Paul has to say about this issue and will not take the time to read anything about his opinion on this topic or any other topic; he’s that ‘dead’ to me.

      What is incontrovertible, regarding 9/11, is that at least one member of GWB’s cabinet stopped flying on commercial airliners in June/July of ’01 and the NIE that GWB failed to heed, in Aug ’01, made it clear that use of commercial planes to attack US assets was in the AQ playbook. What is also incontrovertible are the actions of GWB upon being informed of the attack – actions that to this day astonish me.

          Thank you, Bobfr. You know your president well. It is a shame that they would do such a disservice to the people of this nation by focusing on the suit that the President of the United States was wearing rather than spread the depth of what he said. This is another awful day in this nation where’ playing journalism’ with a message from the President should call for outrage from the nation. It always shows me that these shallow people do not deserve to have a man of PBO’s brilliance stand before them. But PBO realizes that he is the peoples president. He will always do his job well. Trust me.

          However, I am always so grateful to Chips for this space and all of the great contributors who can stand next to this president any day and proudly report to the American people. This is what gives me hope, TOD. They cannot trivialize his words. History will tell of this great man’s presidency in a brilliant way. Put that in the bank.

          We have a world on fire, and these foolish people are focusing on the President’s suit? WTH is wrong with this nation. These fools do not deserve this great man. I truly feel this way.

          Thank you again Nerdy for all that you do for this great space. Chips, you are the best, my love. You surely deserve all of our appreciation for having such brilliant and trusting contributors in this space. I am humbly grateful to you all. I love my TOD family.

If the media is not obsessing over The Suit, which is not new by the way—-I guess they wanted to paint a pic of PBO out suit shopping while all the stuff is going on, which indicates they have NO IDEA who President Obama is—he’s about as far away from a clothes horse as you can get—-even tho he always looks nice (and handsome), he is still wearing most of the same clothes he wore when I first started following him many many moons ago—–but anyhoo—-if they’re not obsessing about The Suit, they look to pluck out any phrase they can find—–out of context and incomplete—–which will send a negative message. Seems impossible but news media keeps sinking to an irresponsible new low. It’s beyond pitiful. They keep failing our country—big time.

    Well folks, this is to let you know that I’ve completed my 8hr trek (to the other side of beyond), and to thank you for your positive, virtual accompaniment. Knowing some of you were traveling with me definitely helped to ease the stress. It took every minute of the EIGHT hours, but I think it only did so because nobody had told the residents that rush hour isn’t meant to be an all-day phenomenon. Apart from traffic snarls, I daresay I could have done the trip in a little over 7hrs. ;) Now the next few days here will be spent trying to get a place close to the university for offspring to rent, IF he doesn’t get to the top of the waiting list. Kind of a weird way to do things, IMO because the uni-vee already has his deposit for 1st month rent. Anyhoo…!

        Thanks, Bobfr. Not sure how I’ll find my way home, as I wouldn’t have made it so effortlessly here without his help. Sure I had a printout from Google Maps, but driving on busy highways plus trying to decipher (what I consider) tiny signs with ‘foreign’ names was challenging for someone who doesn’t like to drive in unfamiliar areas. I already know I don’t know HOW to retrace my steps, but that’s a worry for another day. ;) For today, we made it here (with TOD support) – ‘thank you, lord!’

        • August 28, 2014 at 9:44 pm

          Glad you made it, VC, and I’m sure you’ll find a way to ‘retrace your steps.’ Would suggest you select several exits/landmarks on the return path and exit at each and check your map, ask for help if necessary. You’ll be fine.

            Easier said than done, MP! Apart from the one way streets and summer(? – looks pretty ‘permanent’ to me) construction, I’m almost convinced they had us going in concentric circles. I’m normally pretty good with north-south, east-west directions, but ..I don’t know. As an example, they had me going on Autoroute 20 for hours and hours; next thing I’m going north on Autoroute 40, then, Autoroute 30 for a while, then a couple other numbers in between, only to find myself heading south for ages before finding myself back on Autoroute 20 for another couple of hours!!!! I’m virtually convinced there’s a scam in there somewhere. ;) And all of these norths and souths – when I was clearly headed east were a part of the google directions! Really weird, if you ask me, but here I am, having driven all the way to ‘La belle province’ as the only driver! :) :) Bring on Mt. Everest!

      How about enough about the suit, like I always say when it comes to FLOTUS and what she wears, if she likes what she is wearing then that settles it. Well if POTUS like the suit color, that settles it.

    I can’t believe I know people that are supportive of Russia and what they are doing in Ukraine. It got to the point that I had to ignore him and try not to get too pissed off.

    Listening to Rachel – seems Sam Wang is the man to follow this election

    So Rachel giving the Ken Sorenson story – the relationship to McConnell – and notes “it seems the press has not yet caught up with this one”

    Gosh – the political press doesn’t want to talk about the GOP paying bribes to achieve their ends – who would have thought

      No the press have not caught up with this Sorenson scandal, they rather talk about POTUS suit color. That’s what the press have sunk too

    I find it just amazing – the whiff of a political/money/sex scandal and dems fold and go away – it has the OPPOSITE impact on the GOP – the bigger the scandal, the more they use it to get re-elected – and the media NEVER describes the b.s. of what they do.

    Does she have to be anti the President to win in Kentucky – I sure would have to hold my nose to vote for her – if the interview with Lawrence is anything to go by.

      Sad; however, I guess she knows her constituents. I’m sure true blue dems WON’T vote for Mitch, and if it takes shifting right to gain fence sitters and republicans, so be it. Will be keeping a close eye on her in the senate…

        “Will be keeping a close eye on her in the senate…”

        Luv the conclusion reached to write that last sentence :) As you say – she will say what is needed to win.

        The Democrats need to keep control of the Senate, and we have to do what ever we can to win. I was impress with Mrs Grimmes
