The Conference Board Economics Watch® United States View

Second-quarter GDP figures showed that investment, especially in capital equipment, has started growing at a faster pace. Both mature and emerging economies are strengthening, which should, in addition to a weaker dollar, boost exports. The US economy is therefore likely to enjoy above-trend growth during the second half of 2017, as well as an improved environment for corporate profits.
