US Economy Grows 5.7% in 4th Quarter

“Business are now feeling confident enough to deploy a larger portion of the recent strong corporate earnings rebound into new investment spending,” Brian Bethune, chief financial economist at IHS Global Insight in Lexington, Massachusetts, said before the report was released. “This is a key development to support a strong, non-inflationary recovery.”
