Is the Economy Gaining Momentum?

November 7, 2011
The U.S. GDP grew at an annual rate of 2.5% in the third quarter, nearly doubling the second quarter’s 1.3% growth rate. Does this indicate that the economy is gaining momentum?

The U.S. GDP grew at an annual rate of 2.5% in the third quarter, nearly doubling the second quarter’s 1.3% growth rate. In last week’s CI CyberNews CyberPoll, we asked readers if they think this indicates that the economy is gaining momentum. Responses were as follows:
  • No, the growth is unsustainable: 42.1%
  • Yes, the recovery is in full swing: 31.6%
  • Unsure: 26.3%
One reader commented, “Look for the number to be revised down in a week or two when nobody is paying attention.”
