U.S. Economic Growth Predicted To Be 2.6% in 2nd Q


In a recent sur­vey of 71 econ­o­mists con­duct­ed by Bloomberg News, the econ­o­mists were more opti­mistic about the U. S. econ­o­my than last month. They pre­dict steady, sol­id growth for the econ­o­my fueled by con­sumer spend­ing and low unem­ploy­ment. The econ­o­mists believe the Fed will hold inter­est rates at cur­rent lev­els until the fourth quar­ter.
