    In this issue

    “In the early post-crisis recovery phase, deleveraging, credit constraints and negative wealth effects acted together to hold down household spending, but more recently, the slow growth in real disposable personal income and a highly skewed wealth distribution appear to be the primary factors behind the subdued growth rate in personal consumption expenditure." -  Has Consumption Recovered from the Financial Crisis? by V. Jayakumar

    “The recent $1.3 trillion spending bill and tax cut legislation . . . may extend the Tampa Bay economic expansion beyond 2018 and into mid-2019, contributing to the longest TBE expansion on record.” - Tampa Bay Forecast: Federal Stimulus Extends Local Expansion by J. Stinespring
