WASHINGTON — The U.S. economy grew at a slower pace last month and early this month, as retailers confronted soft consumer spending and expect only small sales gains for the holiday season, according to the Federal Reserve's Beige Book.
"Reports on retail spending were downbeat in general," said the Fed's anecdotal take on the economy across its 12 districts. "Most districts characterized sales as weak or indicated that they had softened."

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
