Hide / Show Abstract

After stagnating in the first half of this year, economic activity is expected to pick up modestly. Real GDP is projected to grow by just 0.6% in 2012 and 1.2% in 2013. Residential investment might decrease as house prices have started to decline from high levels, and affordability is poor. The unemployment rate may peak at 10.5% at the beginning of 2013 and fall only slowly thereafter. Headline inflation should recede to below 2% in 2013.
