Because the output of the government sector is not priced and marketed in the market place, it has to be inferred by the quantity of hrs worked by govt staff. Whilst the shutdown adversely impacted this kind of hours in late 18Q4, they are now down considerably extra in 19Q1. Presuming the shutdown is solved right before the close of this quarter then that would suggest a raise to Q2 GDP growth (nevertheless cumulative output more than the to start with two quarters will be reduced than or else). Nonetheless, we are leaving our Q2 GDP expansion forecast unrevised, also at 2.%. So much it is really hard to convincingly detect a macro effect on non-public sector activity, although hazards of spillover to the personal sector increase the extended the shutdown lasts. -JP Morgan
