GDP Estimates Collapse After Dismal ISM Report

Real Final Sales

The important number is “Real Final Sales“.

That’s the bottom line estimate for the economy. The rest is inventory adjustment which nets to zero over time.

The GDPNow estimate of Real Final Sales fell to 1.6% today, a new low for the series. It’s near, and possibly below the economic stall point.
