Economic activity ebbing in mature and emerging economies


• Slowing emerging economies cannot come to the rescue of mature economies

• U.S. LEI and CEI indicate steady, but very slow economic growth to continue

• U.S. employment gains remain disappointing and restrain consumer spending

• Slowing profit growth and lackluster demand restrains hiring and investment

• Future growth depends on whether U.S. businesses escape the “commodity trap”
