SORT BY Relevancy
According to the Financial Post, U.S. economic growth slowed sharply in the fourth quarter as weak business spending and a wider trade deficit offset the fastest pace of consumer spending since 2006.
The slowdown, which follows two back-to-back quarters of very strong growth, is likely to be short-lived given the enormous tailwind from lower gasoline prices. Most economists believe fundamentals in the United States are strong enough to cushion the blow on growth from weakening overseas economies.
Even with the moderation in the fourth quarter, growth remained above the 2.5% pace, which is considered to be the economy’s potential. Economists had expected the economy to expand at a 3% rate in the fourth quarter
Joining the broadcast to discuss the economy, bond prices, the Fed and housing is Brent Nyitray, Director of Capital Markets at iServe Residential Lending.
Brent is responsible for managing iServe’s origination pipeline and Ginnie Mae securitizations. Prior to iServe, was an analyst and trader at several hedge funds as well as ran the European Risk Arbitrage trading desk at Bear Stearns. Brent is also the author of The Daily Tearsheet, a blog focused on the economy, financial markets and real estate.
The EFed Guerilla Radio (Podcast) comes to you in it's usual Friday night primetime slot, this week with a special edition dedicated to "Angle EFeds." Join El Gringo Loco (@efedguerillas) and @snowjorden plus any of the other EFG Hosts at 9pm EST / 8pm CST / 6pm PST for the show. The plans as of right now for the show include having guest call-ins from Joshua Piedra from Jolt Wrestling, Matt from GCW, Flex from HKW, GCW, PU, SSWA, and Mel from Worldwide Wrestling Force. As always we are looking for more people to call in, but please remember this show is to be centered around Angle Feds this week.
What is an Angle Fed? The EFed Guerilla Radio (Podcast) idea of an Angle Fed is one that does NOT require or use Roleplays to determine winners. Matches and on-show Segments are written primairly by the handlers themselves. Most of the time matches and angles are booked by the handlers themselves. The winners of matches are determined by the handlers themselves in order to further storylines. Roleplays in Angle EFeds do happen, but only as Character Development pieces, they do not count towards anything.
If your EFed falls in line with these parameters, please feel free to call in to talk about your own EFed or an EFed you're apart of. If you do not meet these guidelines but would still like to call-in just to ask questions or contribute to the conversation, please feel free to do so.
The old idiot "Grampa John" turns 72 today and we will celebrate being another year closer to his final resting place in Fed Up American fashion.
There is not one republican out there that can match wits with Fed Up American.
I will defeat their lame arguements all the time.
