The US economy grew by an annualized 6.4 percent in the first quarter, following a 4.3 percent expansion in the previous three-month period and slightly beating market expectations of 6.1 percent, the advance estimate showed. Activity and demand consolidated their recovery from last year's steep contraction, helped by reopening efforts amid an acceleration in the pace of COVID-19 vaccinations and continued government response related to the pandemic. Increases in personal consumption expenditures (PCE), nonresidential fixed investment, federal government spending, residential fixed investment, and state and local government spending were partly offset by decreases in private inventory investment and exports. source: U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis
