The US economy grew at a small rate than before thought. The economy grew at a revised 2.2 percent down from 2.8 percent in third quarter of 2009. The good news is that the economy is surer footing.
The Commerce Department report on the gross domestic product (GDP) was 2.2 percent for the third quarter(the period from July to September). Last month the estimated amount was higher.
The factors for the decline include: commercial construction weaker, business investment in equipment and software was down, consumer spending was piecemeal at best and store inventories lean.
