We encourage you to completely ignore the US GDP report today

By Matt Phillips

Seriously.

Move along.

There’s nothing to see here.

Well, if you must know, US GDP growth fell to a 0.2% annualized rate, which looks pretty bad.

We told you it would be bad. How did we know? Windows. If you looked out any of them between January and March you were treated to a slush-bound hellscape of icy misery. Thankfully, spring has sprung. And there are all sorts of indications that US growth is bouncing back.
