from USA Watchdog:
Economist John Williams says forget all the happy talk about the improving economy. Williams says “The economy is in severe trouble.”
Williams says, “When you see a contraction as we had in the first quarter, given all the upside biases that the government puts into the series, you know the economy is in serious trouble. The second quarter was reported at 4% (GDP). They revised it up to 4.2%. That is not much of a revision, and it is barely significant when you consider there is a margin of error plus or minus three and a half percentage points. Early numbers we have seen on the third quarter suggests that the third quarter is going to be weaker. The numbers for the second quarter . . . do not support 4% growth. There is no way that is happening.”
