Stronger growth?

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - BUSINESS -

Econ­o­mists project that the U.S. econ­omy’s rate of growth ac­cel­er­ated in the July-Septem­ber quar­ter.

Growth, as mea­sured by the gross do­mes­tic prod­uct, in­creased at a rate of 1.4 per­cent in the sec­ond quar­ter, aided by a pickup in busi­ness con­struc­tion. That modest gain fol­lowed a weaker read­ing of 0.8 per­cent growth in the first quar­ter. Econ­o­mists ex­pect that the Com­merce Depart­ment will re­port to­day that the na­tion’s GDP in­creased at a rate of 2.5 per­cent in the third quar­ter.
