Economic Update — April 2019
The US economy appears to be on solid footing despite early-year fears of a slowdown. After a lackluster employment report in February, the labor market bounced back in March, adding a better-than-expected 196,000 jobs. In addition to a rebound in hiring, estimates for first quarter economic growth have risen over the past month. However, even with an expanding labor market and solid economic activity, Fed officials are likely to hold interest rates stable at their upcoming meeting.
Watch this month’s Economic Video Update with Robert Spendlove, Economic and Public Policy Officer for Zions Bank, as we discuss the current economic conditions and the Fed’s upcoming policy meeting.
