Economists are weighing in on how the economic recession and economic growth could affect the 2016 election.
The US Federal Reserve announced on Monday that it was hiking interest rates for the first time in six years, boosting consumer spending.
Inflation has dropped to below 2 per cent, and unemployment is down to 6.6 per cent.
