U.S. growth could slip in coming two years

(MENAFN - Trend News Agency ) Economic growth in the United States may peak this year and could slow in the coming two years, Dallas Fed President Robert S. Kaplan told a business conference in Frankfurt on Thursday, reports.

Kaplan, a non-voting member of the Fed's policy committee, predicted that unemployment would dip below 4 percent this year, suggesting stress in the labor market.

'2018 will be a strong year in the United States,' Kaplan said. 'Our Dallas Fed forecasts for GDP were somewhere between 2-1/2 and 2-3/4 percent.'

'We think we're at or near full employment in the U.S.. We'd expect headline unemployment to dip below 4 percent during this year,' he said.
