NEW YORK (Reuters) - The New York Federal Reserve on Friday pared its forecast on U.S. economic growth in the third quarter to 2.43 percent from 2.63 percent it estimated a week ago due mainly to weak data on domestic retail sales in July.
"The largest negative contribution came from retail
sales data," the N.Y. Fed said in a statement.
