NEW YORK (Reuters) - The U.S. economy is on track to grow at a 3.0 percent annualized rate in the third quarter, the Atlanta Federal Reserve's GDP Now forecast model showed on Thursday following the latest data on retail sales and government spending.
The latest third-quarter GDP estimate was lower than the 3.3 percent figure calculated on Sept. 9, the Atlanta Fed said on its website.
