The government has revised its latest GDP figures, saying the economy grew at a rate of  0.1 percent during the last three months of 2012. Still, the increase was the weakest GDP performance in two years.

Diane Swonk, chief economist at Mesirow Financial, joins Marketplace Morning Report host Jeremy Hobson to discuss the underlying factors behind the numbers and whether the sequester could threaten GDP growth going forward.
