YOUR MONEY with Mark: The Current State of the U.S. Economy and the Impact of the Venezuelan Crisis

When it comes to YOUR MONEY, we want to take it a step further. That's why Mark Grywacheski appears on Good Morning Quad Cities every Monday to give us his analysis of the latest business, economic, and financial news.

On Monday, May 6th, Mark talked about the latest GDP (Gross Domestic Product) report and how the U.S. economy is doing so far in 2019 compared to 2018. He also mentioned some the challenges that the U.S. faces for the rest of the year:

"The U.S. economy is still facing a number of concerns, specifically the weakening of the global economy," he explained. "We also had a pullback in consumer spending, which is the key driver of the U.S. economy. However, consumer spending was strong enough to alleviate those concerns."

Mark also gave his insight on the economic and political crisis in Venezuela and how it could impact the U.S. markets. Click the video link above to see our entire conversation.
