As weather turns warmer, reports from the 12 Federal Reserve Districts are sunny! National economic activity continued to expand in late February and March. Districts were unanimous: Economic growth was in the modest to moderate range and growth would continue on the upswing going forward. Consumer spending increased and reports on tourism were positive. As positive performance continues, construction and real estate activity increased. Slow and steady wins the race!


Consumer spending increased modestly in late February and March, and retailers remain optimistic about growth marching forward. The continuing trend of creative discounts, loyalty perks, in-store events and promotions, favorable credit conditions, and low gas prices “supporting a steady pace of growth in consumer spending.” 


Most districts were in agreement that tourism was a very bright spot and that is super news for hoteliers, restaurateurs, retailers and entertainment! Business and leisure travel remained strong and the winter season was profitable; ski resorts report robust revenue!
