What was the economy like in 2016?

When it comes to growth, the economy expanded at 2.3 percent last year. That is on par with 1.5 percent growth in 2016, 2.9 percent in 2015 and 2.6 percent in 2014.

Also question is, was there a recession in 2016?

Overall economic growth slowed but remained in positive territory. The national unemployment rate kept falling. The end of the mini-recession in the spring of 2016 created a capital spending rebound that began in mid-2016, and it has contributed to speedier growth since.

The Bureau of Economic Analysis, the government agency that compiles gross domestic product data, said the economy grew 2.9 percent in 2015, an upward revision from the 2.6 percent it had estimated earlier.
