Alfred Broaddus of the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond said "When I fire up my lawn mower each weekend, the engine usually runs a little roughly for a minute before it breaks into a hum. I believe, and many of my business contacts now believe, that the economy is poised to hum - not to roar, but to hum."
