Beige Book shows economic growth
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The U.S. economy grew throughout the country from late May through early July, bolstered by the housing recovery, consumers and more factory output.
A Federal Reserve survey released Wednesday, known as the Beige Book, showed eleven of the Fed banking districts reported "modest to moderate" growth, while the Dallas-based district reported "strong" growth for the second-straight survey.
The report, known as the Beige Book, is based on anecdotal information gathered by the regional banks. For the region including Georgia, Alabama, Florida and parts of Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee, the economy expanded at a modest pace as auto and home sales rose and hotels and restaurants reported strong demand.
Ports in the district said there was significant growth in international trade compared with a year earlier, including exports of natural gas.
