The U.S. economy is expected to see its best performance in 10 years in 2015, with gross domestic product growing a forecasted average of 3.2%, according to a Reuters poll of 82 economists. Their optimism remains strong despite a weak first quarter, because the labor market is strengthening.
“There may be a few ups and downs this year, but the economy’s fundamentals are very strong and they are going to outweigh the issues from abroad. Three percent GDP [growth] is achievable,” says Ryan Sweet, a senior economist at Moody’s Analytics.
