GREAT AGAIN: GDP Estimates SOAR TO 4.8% in SECOND QUARTER
The US economy continues to roar to life under President Trump and the GOP-controlled Congress, with the Atlanta Federal Reserve raising the economic estimates for the second quarter of 2018 up to a staggering 4.8%.

“The GDPNow model estimate for real GDP growth (seasonally adjusted annual rate) in the second quarter of 2018 is 4.8 percent on June 14, up from 4.6 percent on June 8,” says a new report from the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta.
The staggering statistics come on the heels of record breaking tax revenue and an inverted job index for the first time in US history, where there are more jobs available than workers to fill them.
