WASHINGTON (AP) - The economy grew at a solid 3.8 percent annual rate in the final quarter of 2004 - stronger than previously estimated- and an encouraging sign that the business expansion was firmly entrenched at the start of the new year.

The new reading on gross domestic product, released by the Commerce Department Friday, was better than the government's initial calculation made a month ago. That estimate showed the economy growing at a 3.1 percent pace.

The improvement reflected more robust spending by businesses on capital equipment and to build up inventories of goods. The trade deficit also was less of a drag on fourth-quarter growth than initially thought.

GDP, the broadest barometer of the country's economic health, measures the value of all goods and services produced within the United States.

The new fourth-quarter GDP figure also was better than the 3.5 percent growth rate that economists had forecast in advance of Friday's release by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Although economic growth in the final quarter of last year was a bit slower than the 4 percent pace measured in the third quarter, the performance was still solid.

For all of 2004, the economy expanded by 4.4 percent, the best showing in five years. This annual estimate was the same as first reported last month.

Most of them it does, some of them it doesn't.

Cue Denise to come into the thread, point out one minor detail that could be seen as negative, and act as though it negates the whole story. We're still doomed! DOOMED!

Anything that is good for Bush, Hard lefts on the planet either ignore or hate. Anything that is bad for Bush ( I don't know maybe for example Iraq war casulties) Hard lefts on this planet will post and post and well post some more about it, so I believe my conclusion is correct.

Work on developing a more well-rounded view of the opposition -- it will help you in the long run. Trust me.

With the philosophy of greed that this administration has displayed and their complete disregard for the needy, it is no surprise the rich keep getting richer. [/penchief]

[/penchief]I don't know if I am rich yet but I was smart enough to realize Oil prices weren't sustainable at $30/bbl with war in Iraq looming and China growing so I bought some XOM at 40 bucks a share.

I really thought the American Communist Party was a larger viewership number than that.

Hey, he's almost down to the number of votes he needs to find in Ohio in his personal hand recount!
