The Economic Barometer is a quarterly snapshot of local, regional and national economic trends that is produced by Dr. Woody Hall and Dr. Tom Simpson. This is the last economic barometer lead by Dr. Woody Hall, who retired on July 1st after a 40 year career at UNCW. Dr. Adam Jones will serve as the new regional economist for the Swain Center. Highlights from the 3rd Quarter Barometer:

U.S. Economy: Growth in real GDP in the second quarter of this year rebounded from the depressed first quarter, which had been held down by extreme winter weather and the west coast dock strike. The pickup brought output growth up to about a 2 % rate for the first half. This pace is close to the disappointing average growth of 2.3 % that has characterized the current expansion that began in mid-2009.

Local Economy: Revised data on real (inflation-adjusted) gross domestic product (GDP) show that with the exception of 2012, the Wilmington, NC MSA (New Hanover and Pender Counties) economy grew over 2010-13. Real GDP in the MSA is forecast to rise 3.5% over 2014 and 3.8% over both 2015 and 2016.
