Economy Slows Down; Rates not Likely to Change

Reports gathered from the Federal Reserve Bank's 12 regional banks indicate that the economy slowed down during the spring and early summer periods.

This report comes on the heels of a story published yesterday on AccountingWeb in which American productivity increased just over 5 percent.
