Liveblog - The Russia-Ukraine Conflict and In Case You Missed It: April 28, 2022

We will continue to combine both blogs, In Case You Missed It and the Russia-Ukraine Conflict. Please feel free to share any headlines we may have missed or new developments occurring in Ukraine or Russia providing they come from reliable and credible sources. We won’t accept any parroted, Russian propaganda from far-right ‘news’ sources unless you’re trying to point out that the far-right extremist in our country and elsewhere actually believe their own BS or Russian disinformation. We also ask that you provide a link to your source so folks can read it if they want.

  • Declines in fixed investment, defense spending and the record trade imbalance weighed on growth.
  • Consumer expenditures rose 2.7%, but that came amid a 7.8% increase in prices.
  • “This is noise; not signal. The economy is not falling into recession,” wrote Ian Shepherdson, chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics.
