A serious debate is underway among economists over the effects of the turmoil in Europe.
Some economists are sticking to their guns and seeing little effect, while others are shaving as much as half a percentage point off growth in the second half of this year.
The outlook from six economists surveyed by CNBC is an average of growth at 3 percent over the next year, including a slight bump this quarter, and then a dip to 2.9 percent over the subsequent two quarters.
However, some of those economists see a growth rate of as low as 2 percent, while others expect a high of 4 percent.
The debate about the nation's projected near-term expansion also pits the big guns on Wall Street against each other.
