Canada's Economic Growth Triples U.S.'s quoting : "huffingtonpost"

The Richmond Fed reported persistent labor shortages, pushing upward pressure on wages and hindering growth in some industries. "A majority of districts reported that firms expressed positive near-term outlooks; however, optimism waned somewhat in a few districts," according to the report, released Wednesday in Washington. Still, "most firms across the districts noted little change to the recent trend of modest to moderate wage growth." Projections from Fed officials published in March put the Federal Open Market Committee on a course for two additional rate increases this year, following a hike that month. While costs for some commodities rose, prices, overall, "were little changed from the prior report, with most districts reporting modest increases," the Beige Book said.
