- The US economy is yet again reinventing itself. This has been helped along by a determination to get the US economy moving again after the global financial crisis but the real drivers are an energy boom, a manufacturing renaissance and American innovation.
- Together these drivers could add as much as 0.5% to annual US economic growth in the decade ahead.
- For investors, while a return to the sustained double digit share market returns seen through the 1980s and 1990s is unlikely, the turn for the better in the US is likely driving a new secular bull market in traditional global shares.
