The U.S. economy might have the wind at its back in the spring. That wasn’t the case early in the new year.

There’s no doubt the economy is laboring through a tough stretch. The big question is whether it gets worse before it gets better.

Bet on growth speeding up. The economy has repeatedly started a new year off slowly since the U.S. exited its last recession in mid-2009. And growth has usually picked up in the spring.

The same pattern seems ready to re-emerge, and early hints might come this week from the first batch of reports on how the economy is performing in March.
