7 reasons to expect a slow-growth U.S. economy ahead


Is the U.S. headed for a slow-growth economy that lasts perhaps for as long as a decade?  The U.S. has already registered below-trend GDP growth at this recovery’s start — just 3.5% in the third quarter, versus the more than 6% GDP growth typically registered in an expansion’s initial stage. Here’s why the slow-growth conditions might continue:

  • Housing sector doldrums
  • Frugal consumers
  • Demographics (the U.S. population is aging)
  • Export traffic jam
  • U.S. budget deficit reduction
  • Workforce reduction
  • Wage stagnation
