Improvement in both consumer confidence and the labor market are expected to boost economic growth in the second half of the year, according to Fannie Mae’s Economic & Strategic Research Group. The latest jobs report showed steady year-to-date job creation and measures of consumer confidence are at or near recovery highs.
“Consumer attitudes are improving amid a strengthening employment sector, and we should begin to see a moderate pickup in consumer spending. Overall, we expect economic growth to come in at 2% in 2013, but further momentum later this year should help carry growth in 2014 to an above-par pace of 2.6%, the strongest since 2005,” said Fannie Mae Chief Economist Doug Duncan.
