US' 2Q GDP - As Good As It Gets?

Vishnu Varathan, Head of Economics & Strategy, Mizuho Bank, Singapore

30-Aug-18 07:35


The estimates of the second quarter GDP for the US has been revised upwards to 4.2%. Is that as good as it gets or are there more tailwinds for US economic growth?

We ask Vishnu this.

We also discuss Asian markets that have had a leg-up over the last few days with positive news-flow coming out of the US on the trade front. Vishnu shares his view on the sustainability of that momentum.
