The US economy is still growing at an above average rate quarter-over-quarter, but Q2’s GDP print was lower than expected (6.5% versus the expected 8.4%).

US GDP growth slowed as M2 Money growth slowed. Although M2 Money growth us almost 2x real GDP growth.

M2 Money velocity fell … again … to its second lowest print in history at 1.1197.
