White House Council of Economic Advisers Chair Kevin Hassett spoke to reporters about poor performance in U.S. and global financial markets in the latter half of 2018. He predicted 2019 would bring at least three percent economic growth. He also said a partial government shutdown, which was in its fifth day, would have only short-term effects on affected federal workers and the economy at large.
