US economy registers record growth of 33 % in 3rd quarter
The US economy grew at its fastest pace ever in the third quarter as a nation battered by an unprecedented pandemic started to put itself back together.
Third-quarter gross domestic product, a measure of the total goods and services produced in the July-to-September period, expanded at a 33.1% annualized pace.
Markets reacted positively to the news, with Wall Street erasing a loss at the open and turning mostly positive.
Increased consumption along with sold gains in business and residential investment as well as exports fueled the third-quarter rebound.
