What to look at within the 2023 financial system: gasoline costs, housing, jobs and extra – The Washington Publish

Extra broadly, the U.S. financial system has rebounded after unexpectedly shrinking in early 2022. A rise in authorities spending and a narrowing commerce hole, with American retailers importing much less and exporting extra, helped gross home product late within the yr.

However economists warn that these features may very well be short-lived as main chunks of the financial system, together with housing and shopper spending, proceed to average.

“The irony is, we’re seeing the strongest progress of the yr when issues are literally slowing,” Diane Swonk, chief economist at KPMG, mentioned in October, after the third-quarter GDP outcomes. “There are some actual cracks within the basis. Housing is contracting. The patron is slowing. GDP is rising, however not for the entire proper causes.”
