2015 in Review

 

Q2 2014 Issue

State of the Economy

The U.S. economy is neither idle nor booming. CBEST full-year 2014 estimates are for the U.S. economy to grow 2.4% and experience inflation of 1.4%. We estimate full-year 2014 economic growth of 3.1% for Mexico.

 

 

Q2 2014 Issue

Going Forward

CBEST estimates the U.S. economy will expand by 1.7% and face 1% growth in consumer prices in 2015. In 2015 the Federal Reserve will likely move its benchmark rate from close to zero to about 50 basis points. CBEST forecasts the U.S. economy to continue its moderate pace of growth.

 

 

Q2 2014 Issue

Thinking Ahead

What do CBEST full-year 2015 estimates mean to the RGV? How will the declining value of Oil and depreciating peso affect the region? What does CBEST projections say about the level of employment, housing, and aggregate economic activity in the RGV? Plan ahead with the latest forecast.
