Slide2:  Another Jobless U.S. Recovery? The U.S. recovery lost momentum in late 2002. Investment and hiring plans are on hold until the Iraq situation is resolved. Consumer spending is driving the expansion; incomes continue to rise, but household finances and confidence have weakened. Business investment has stabilized, but excess capacity will limit its near-term growth. Europe, Japan, and South America are struggling, holding back the recovery in U.S. exports. Expect subpar growth through spring. Slide3:  No Employment Growth So Far The U.S. lost 1.9 million jobs from March 2001 to February 2003. (Percent change, annual rate) Slide4:  Recovery Forces Are in Place Expansionary monetary and fiscal policies—early and often Resilient consumer spending Strong housing demand End of high-tech bust Low inflation and strong productivity growth A successful outcome in Iraq will set the stage for solid growth in late 2003 and 2004.
