Real GDP increased 3.0 percent in the first quarter of 1994, down from a 7.0- percent increase in the fourth quarter of 1993. Corporate profits decreased $33.5 billion after increasing $39.4 billion; the downturn was partly attributable to the effects of the Northridge earthquake. The Federal deficit decreased $42.3 billion, to $164.7 billion; the State and local government position deteriorated $9.0 billion, to a deficit of $1.8 billion.

36 Pollution Abatement and Control Expenditures, 1972–92: Estimates for 1992 and Revised Estimates for 1972–91 (PDF)

Real spending for pollution abatement and control (PAC) increased 5.1 percent in 1992, in contrast to a 0.7-percent decrease in 1991. Spending increased for all three major types of pollution abatement—air, water, and solid waste—but the increase for solid waste was the largest. During 1972–92, PAC spending increased at a 3.3-percent average annual rate.

50 U.S. Business Enterprises Acquired or Established by Foreign Direct Investors in 1993 (PDF)

In 1993, after declining for 4 years, outlays by foreign investors for acquiring and establishing U.S. businesses increased sharply. The turnaround partly reflected the continued U.S. economic expansion, improved borrowing conditions in the United States, and improved business conditions in the United Kingdom and Canada—traditionally two of the largest investor countries.
