Economists: GDP Growth Not Sufficient

Those numbers won;t put a dent in unemployment


The latest report on the U.S. economy shows the recovery is still weak, but starting to pick up.

The government says the economy grew at a 2 percent annual rate in the third quarter of the year. That's up from one-point-three percent in the second quarter.

But economists say it takes several quarters of growth of more than 2 1/2 percent to put a dent in unemployment.
