·    Consumer spending and business investment were the major drivers of growth in Q4 2018.
·    Top economic headwinds include the softening Chinese economy, a slowing European economy and U.S. manufacturing weakness.
·    Robust wage growth and dovish Federal Reserve policy around interest rates are top economic tailwinds.
