U.S. Economy Remains Resilient

Despite some concerns at the start of 2019, the U.S. economy remains in very good shape. After a bit of turbulence in late 2018 and early 2019 that included slowing growth in major global economies, uncertainty surrounding the imposition of U.S. trade tariffs on imports from China, mixed messages from the Fed on monetary policy, and a partial government shutdown, the U.S. economy continues to expand at a healthy clip. Real GDP grew by a solid 2.6% in the fourth quarter of 2018, led once again by consumer spending. Looking ahead, we forecast real GDP growth in the mid-2% range in 2019—a moderation from the 2.9% growth rate in 2018, but still a very healthy backdrop for commercial real estate.
