Hurricane Harvey probably shaved 1% from third-quarter growth, Goldman Sachs says
Costs from the storm, which hammered Texas last month, will eclipse those associated with 2012’s Hurricane Sandy, the bank’s analysts wrote in a research note. Using a model that examined the 35 largest hurricanes to strike the U.S. in the aftermath of World War II, Goldman found that major natural disasters correlated closely with a “temporary slowdown” in key economic gauges.
“Modeling these effects, we estimate that hurricane-related disruptions could reduce 3Q GDP growth by as much as 1 percentage point,” Goldman’s analysts wrote, adding that the main impact would be felt in consumer spending, business inventories, housing and the energy sectors.11 Sep '17 at 11:56 pm #1165111 Sep '17 at 11:58 pm #1165212 Sep '17 at 12:02 am #11653
