The U.S. economy expanded at a 2.7% annual rate from October through December, a solid showing despite rising interest rates and elevated inflation. The government had previously estimated that the economy grew at a 2.9% annual rate last quarter. The report revised down the government's estimate of consumer spending growth in the October December quarter, from a 2.1% rate to 1.4%. That was the weakest such showing since the first quarter of last year. Business spending also slowed in the fourth quarter, suggesting that the economy lost momentum at the end of 2022.Download Economic Perspective Chartbook
