Economic Update-
Gross Domestic Product (GNP) grew by a solid 3.0 percent in the third quarter of
2017, according to the first of three readings by the Bureau of Economic Analysis.
This follows the strong showing in second quarter, when economic activity
increased 3.1 percent. Consumer spending, which makes up nearly two-thirds of
economic activity, increased 2.4 percent after increasing 3.3 percent the previous
quarter. GDP is the best way to measure a country’s overall economic health and
includes the total value of finished goods and services produced within a country’s
borders in a specific timeframe.

Try to avoid walking on the tiny seedlings now, and once leaves fall, rake gently.
