Compared to the third quarter of 2023, when US GDP had an annualized expansion of 4.9%, the reading shows a significant slowdown in the US economy.

For the full year 2023, US GDP showed growth of 2.5%, after a 1.9% increase in 2022, estimated a month ago.

The Commerce Department reported that the Consumer Expenditure Index (PCE) rose at an annual rate of 1.8% in the fourth quarter, losing momentum after rising 2.6% in the third quarter.

Excluding food and energy prices, they rose 2% in the previous quarter and rose 2.1% between October and December.

In the first calculation, annualized gains for PCE and its core in the fourth quarter are estimated at 1.7% and 2%, respectively.

PCE is the preferred inflation measure of the Federal Reserve, or the Fed, also known as the US Federal Reserve.
