The US economy has continued to thrive throughout the second quarter, a theme that will continue to play heavily during mid-term elections, according to Transwestern’s latest edition of the BRIEFING. “Thanks to a boost from year-end tax reform, we’ve witnessed stable, controlled growth throughout the first half of 2018,” said Tom McNearney, Transwestern chief investment officer. “With unemployment at an 18-year low and wages rising, we expect to see a slight rise in GDP later this year.”
