U.S. Economy to See Faster Growth After Winter Freeze: OECD

Reuters (05/06/14) Lucia Mutikani

U.S. gross domestic product will expand at a 3.9% annual pace this quarter, and growth likely will remain at a brisk pace for the remainder of 2014, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. OECD says inflation pressures will remain tame through 2015. Growth is expected to average 2.6% this year and quicken to 3.5% in 2015, OECD says.

“Household deleveraging and the rise in asset prices have caused household net wealth to rise significantly, which will help sustain consumption growth,” the report indicates. “Economic growth could also be stimulated more robustly than expected by factors such as improved competitiveness and low energy prices.”
