The U.S. economy will likely grow more quickly this year than previously anticipated, according to USA Today’s quarterly survey of 50 economists. Their median estimates are higher than they were in January for a number of benchmarks including hiring. They think job growth will be about 20% more robust than they did at the beginning of the year. The economists predict average employment gains of about 185,000 per month through December, up 29,000 from their January predictions.
