the American Ministry of Trade has reconsidered the data on growth of gross national product of the country following the results of II quarter. Under the specified data, past quarter the economy of the USA has grown on 1,6 % whereas earlier it was informed on growth on 2,4 %.
However, even towards fall it is possible to consider revision of gross national product as positive statistics. The analysts interrogated by Reuters agency, on the average expected revision of this indicator towards fall - to 1,4 %.
As appears from a press - release of American Ministry of Trade, personal expenses of consumers in real expression have grown for accounting quarter on 2 % whereas earlier it was informed on growth on 1,6 %.
Investments into fixed capital (without considering investments into inhabited real estate) have increased by 17,6 % (according to preliminary data, growth made 17 %). Investments into the equipment and the software have grown on 24,9 % (against 21,9 %).
At the same time it is necessary to note sharp growth of import in II quarter - on 32,4 % (earlier it was informed on growth on 28,8 %) simultaneously with reduction of rates of increase of the American export - on 9,1 % (according to preliminary data, has been fixed growth on 10,3 %).
it is necessary to notice also that the markets expected the report of the Ministry of Trade with a sinking heart: recently in expert community it is possible to hear even more often conversations on delay of rates of increase of the largest economy of the world. Moreover, some investors even speak about a high probability of the second wave of recession in the American economy.
experts also notice that delay of rates of increase of the largest economy of the world already became the present problem for US president Barack Obama and its Democratic party. Especially actual all economic problems become now, on the threshold of congressional elections (will pass on November, 2nd this year).
It is obvious that rates of increase of the American economy are slowed down. However about recession speech does not go yet if to understand as a word recession recession of economy throughout two and more quarters - leading economist PNC Financial Services Robert Daj marks.
as he said, the following variant of succession of events in the near future is possible: small recession in one quarter and a small gain in the following. thus, while the economy of the USA will balance between growth and falling - the expert has concluded.
we will remind that growth of gross national product of the USA is fixed already the fourth quarter successively the ambassador of long recession. However rates of increase are obviously slowed down: in IV quarter of last year the American gross national product grew with a speed of 5 %, in I quarter of this year - with speed of 3,7 %, and here now economy growth was slowed down to 1,4 %.
