Beige Book: Economic Activity Continues To Expand Nationwide

12/4/2013

The latest issue of the Beige Book indicates that the national economy has continued to expand at a modest to moderate pace from early October to mid-November. Similar to the previous report, the Eighth District economy grew at a moderate pace; this positive assessment was driven primarily by reports of planned expansion and hiring in manufacturing and services industries. An audio summary of Eighth District conditions is presented by St. Louis Fed economist Rubén Hernández-Murillo; listen in English or Spanish.
