The Gross Domestic Product (GDP), which represents the total dollar value of all goods and services produced in the U.S., rose at a 2.5 percent annual rate according to economists surveyed by Bloomberg news. The survey showed that consumer purchases, which account for 70 percent of the U.S. economy, grew the most since the end of 2010. "Consumer activity really accelerated last quarter," said Christopher Low, chief economist at FTN Financial in New York. "The increase in retail sales we saw was really terrific, and it came after three months of almost no spending growth at all."
