GDP posted at an anemic 0.1% for 1st quarter 2014. This was propped up by a huge INCREASE in healthcare spending, resulting from bending the cost-curve downward, or something. Absent that surge, it would have been negative.
I am kind of at a loss, because this is so mendoucheous and predictable, yet startling nonetheless. They are combating global warming, but winter wrecked the economy. A little more global warming and we would have been just fine.
