Q3 GDP growth anemic

GDP growth in Q3 comes in at 1.5%.

US estimated real gross domestic product increased at an annual rate of 1.5% in the third quarter, according to the initial estimate issued by the Commerce Department today.  This follows Q2 GDP growth of 3.9%. 

Economists had expected growth to come in at 1.6%.

The sharply lower growth rate was largely due to a significant decline in the growth of inventories, as producers attempted to correct a surplus built up last quarter.  This effect, however, is considered by most economists to be temporary, and fourth quarter growth is expected to more vigorous.
