Angel: October Surprise? U.S. Economic Growth May Accelerate Just Before Election Day
Some forecasters see U.S. GDP growth on track for a 3% pace in the third quarter, to be announced in a late-October report
Less than two weeks before Election Day, American voters could learn that economic growth has suddenly accelerated to its fastest pace in two years.
It’s not a trick or conspiracy, simply the product of the government’s regular schedule for releasing economic statistics. The Commerce Department’s first estimate of gross domestic product for the third quarter has long been scheduled to come out on Oct. 28, 11 days before the Nov. 8 presidential election. Many economists are predicting the report will show a pickup in growth after three straight quarters of lackluster expansion, fueled by decent-if-not-great consumer spending and the end of a five-quarter drag from lackluster business inventories.
A lot can (and probably will) change between now and late October. But as of Friday, forecasting firm Macroeconomic Advisersprojected a 3.1% seasonally adjusted annual growth rate for GDP in the third quarter.
The Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta’s GDPNow model on Thursday predicted a 3% growth rate. Oxford Economicson Friday also estimated the third quarter’s growth rate at 3%.
Tishwash: Hidden Treasure: Indians are Liquidating The Family Jewelry as Gold Prices Soar
NEW DELHI—In a centuries-old gold bazaar, Sanjay Malhotra peers through a magnifying lens at a dull gold necklace resting on a small bed of red velvet. Such old possessions are streaming into his shop of late, a tip-off to a significant change afoot in one of the world’s largest gold markets.
Farmers have been cashing in on gold’s soaring price—up about 22% since the start of the year—to buy extra seed in a year that, true to forecasts, delivered unusually bountiful rains. Other rural Indians have piled into gold shops to sell at an unusually fast clip as well.
“There are a lot of people who have been coming to sell their gold these days. People want to cash in on the high prices,” Mr. Malhotra said, noting that customers have been trading items as small as nose pins.
Gold holds a special place in India, which vies with China as the world’s top gold consumer. But with prices sky high, many Indians have decided it is time to sell the family jewels.
So much recycled gold has come into the system in the past few months that it has met 45% to 60% of the local gold demand, said Bachhraj Bamalwa, director of All India Gems and Jewellery Trade Federation. LINK
