    NEW YORK, Feb. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The February issue of Wolters Kluwer's Blue Chip Economic Indicators suggests that Congress is likely to pass – and President Trump is likely to sign - comprehensive legislation aimed at reforming the tax code this year.

    NEW YORK--( BUSINESS WIRE )--January’s issue of Wolters Kluwer’s Blue Chip Financial Forecasts suggests that, on the heels of its December 2016 rate hike, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) will raise the federal funds rate twice in 2017 - a consensus that is more conservative than the FOMC “dot plot,” which indicates three rate hikes. The panel also anticipates a gradual acceleration in inflation, approaching the Federal Reserve’s 2.0% target by the end of 2017 and real GDP growth about half a percentage point faster than last year, measured on a fourth-quarter-over-fourth-quarter basis. Other consensus findings and details from...
