gross domestic product

Dec 20, 2013 — Growth was stronger than thought in the third quarter, the Bureau of Economic Analysis says. It now estimates that gross domestic product grew at a 4.1 percent annual rate. That's the best pace since late 2011.

May 30, 2013 — Gross domestic product expanded at a 2.4 percent annual rate in the first quarter, the government reports. At one point, economists thought growth was closer to 3 percent in the first three months of the year.
Comments |
Apr 26, 2013 — Growth was a bit weaker than economists expected, but was well above fourth-quarter 2012's weak 0.4 percent increase. The first-quarter figure is likely to be revised in coming months, perhaps closer to the 3.2 percent growth economists were expecting.

Jul 27, 2012 — The nation's gross domestic product grew at a 1.5 percent annual rate, the Bureau of Economic Analysis estimates, down from a 2 percent pace in the first quarter.
Comments |
Apr 27, 2012 — That's down from the 3 percent pace in fourth-quarter 2011, but is still better than the 1.7 percent growth for all of last year. And there was strong growth in consumer spending — a key driving force for the economy.
Comments |
Oct 27, 2011 — While modest, the 2.5 percent pace is the best growth since third-quarter 2010. And the news eases recession fears.
