Population in USA
USA - PopulationThe economy recorded its best showing in almost four years in the second quarter, thanks to strong private spending and a front-loading of business activity—notably export-oriented—ahead of the implementation of reciprocal tariffs with China in early July. Signs further point to robust but slightly decelerating momentum heading into the third quarter. In July, the unemployment rate ticked down, while consumer confidence remained near historic highs and retail sales were solid, boding well for consumption. However, the ISM index eased in July after a burst of activity in June, while industrial production growth only inched up in the same month. Nevertheless, the sharp drop in inventories observed in Q2 is likely to be reversed this quarter, which could provide a sizeable boost to growth.
