growth… as temporary factors begin to fade. She added the U.S. economy has been growing
at a moderate pace all year… despite the impact of recent hurricanes,… and the labor
market has continued to strengthen. Most economists are expecting the Fed to raise
interest rates in December,… with three additional rate hikes to come in 2018.
