The U.S. economy grew at a 2.2% annual pace in the third quarter, a bit faster than the 1.6% initially estimated, but down from the 2.6% in the previous quarter, the Commerce Department reported Wednesday in its first revision to the gross domestic product report. Revisions came largely from greater building of inventories and lower imports than originally assumed. Business investment also grew more than first estimated, while consumer spending was slightly slower. Final sales of domestic product increased 2.1%, up from the 1.7% originally reported. Meanwhile, a key measure of core inflation was revised a tenth of a percentage point lower, to 2.2%.
