Breakfast With the Economists: A Mid-Year Economic Update
So far, recovery from the Great Recession has been a slow slog. Reduced population mobility, strict credit standards for borrowers, cautious hiring, rising gasoline prices, the absence of a rebound in homebuilding and low confidence are only some of the factors holding the economy back.

Nevertheless, recent developments in the U.S. economy have been encouraging and the Eurozone has made significant progress dealing with its sovereign debt and banking issues. Housing prices appear to have turned the corner vis-à-vis strong investor demand and lean inventories of houses for sale, and employment growth strengthened in recent months.
