US Growth Slows to 1.1%, Inflation Accelerates

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

The US economy slowed in the first three months of the year, as businesses reduced investments in the face of higher borrowing costs.

The economy grew 1.1% on an annualised basis, the Commerce Department said.

That was down from a rate of 2.6% in the prior quarter, despite strong consumer spending.

Analysts are watching nervously to see how the world’s largest economy handles a mix of higher interest rates and rising prices.
