With a broad array of uncertainties and a volatile stock market, the Fed raising rates and the war with Russia and Ukraine,  there are valid concerns over the strength of the economy. However, various measures show the economy continues to march along despite these concerns. One example is the Atlanta Fed GDPNow estimate, which is a real time estimate of GDP. Several data points, such as consumer spending and recent jobs numbers have come in better than expected, suggesting that the economy is stronger than some fear.
