US Economic Update – 10 February 2017

  • Moderate growth in the US is expected to continue, but with some strengthening later in the year if, as expected, the new Administration delivers a fiscal stimulus.
  • The President has indicated details of his tax plans will be released in 2-3 weeks.
  • However, the size of any stimulus is likely to be more limited than the President’s election policies would suggest due to the underlying weak budget outlook.
