Economy Likely Showed Strength At The End Of 2013
WASHINGTON (AP) — The government today makes its first of three estimates of economic growth for the final quarter of 2013.
Experts predict the economy likely grew solidly in the last quarter, at an annual growth rate of 3.3 percent.
But for all of 2013, the number is more like 1.9 percent. That would be below the 2.8 percent growth for 2012 as measured by the gross domestic product.
GDP represents the country's total output of goods and services.
