Various Comments of United States Economic Forecast

U.S. Economic fundamentals continue to improve.

U.S GDP growth of 2.5% - 2.7%.

Unemployment lowering to around 6.5%.

Employment growth of around 1.7%.

Job gains frequently over 200,000 a month.

Mortgage rates climbing toward 5.5%.

Federal government fights less economically disruptive.

FED stimulus of the economy easing (tapering), but not difficult to crank it back up.

Utah Commercial Real Estate experts are looking for a strong 2014

Sold $1.4 B in industrial investment in 2013. Expect to repeat in 2014.

Office absorption up, vacancies down, rents up, new construction.

Retail added 1M sq. ft. in 2013; looking for continued levels of activity.

Distribution looking for 1.9M new sq. ft. in 2014


Utah s current economic overview april 2014 mark knold supervising economist utah department of workforce services

Utah Expectation for 2014

Job growth from 3.5% to 3.8%.

I expect 4.0% to 4.2% in 2015.

I am an optimist.

Base this on improved U.S. performance for 2014 and 2015.

Unemployment will be low, but still masking the underutilization of Utah labor.

Therefore, wage growth could still be below average.

Normally in-migration would be a contributing factor, but could still be weak.
