US economy acceleratesat 2.5 percent rate in Q1
WASHINGTON (AP)— U.S. economic growthaccelerated from Januarythrough March, buoyed bythe strongest consumerspending in more than twoyears. The strength offset fur-ther declines in governmentspending that are expected todrag on growth throughoutthe year.The CommerceDepartment said today thatthe overall economy expand-ed at an annual rate of 2.5percent in the first quarter,rebounding from the anemic0.4 percent growth rate in theOctober-December quarter.Much of the gain reflecteda jump in consumer spend-ing, which rose at an annualrate of 3.2 percent. That’s thebest since the end of 2010.Businesses responded to thegreater demand by rebuildingto their stockpiles. And homeconstruction rose further.But government spendingfell at a 4.1 percent rate, ledby another deep cut in federaldefense spending. That keptgrowth below economists’expectations of a rate exceed-ing 3 percent. And broad gov-ernment spending cuts thatbegan in March are expectedto weigh on the economy forthe rest of the year, whilehigher taxes have started tomake some consumers andbusinesses cautious.Many economists say theythink growth as measured bythe gross domestic productis slowing in the April-Junequarter to an annual rate of just 2 percent. Most foreseegrowth remaining around thissubpar level for the rest of the year.GDP is the broadest gaugeof the economy’s health. Itmeasures the total output of goods and services producedin the United States, fromhaircuts and hamburgers toairplanes and automobiles.The cuts in governmentspending have forced federalagencies to furlough workers,reduced spending on key pub-lic projects and made busi-nesses more nervous aboutinvesting and hiring this year.The cuts came two monthsafter President BarackObama and Congress alloweda Social Security tax cut toexpire. That left a personearning $50,000 a year withabout $1,000 less to spendthis year. A household withtwo high-paid workers has upto $4,500 less.Consumers’ take-homepay is crucial to the economybecause their spending drivesroughly 70 percent of growth.Americans appeared toshrug off the tax increase atthe start of the year. Theyboosted spending in Januaryand February, helped by astronger job market. In part,that’s why growth is expectedto be solid in the first quarter.
