The Federal Reserve predicted Wednesday the
U.S. economy will grow between 2.3 percent and 3 percent next year,
slightly less than previously forecast.
Unemployment will be in the 7.4 percent to 7.7 percent range, the central bank said. Projections in September had forecast unemployment of 7.6 percent to 7.9 percent.
The September estimate had forecast 2.5 to 3 per cent growth in gross domestic product.
