    Good News from WSJ for CSX...

    Consumer spending helped to accelerate economic activity in the third quarter but the overall U.S. recovery remains sluggish, according to Fannie Mae.

    The mortgage-finance company said U.S. gross domestic product has climbed 7.2% since its low point in 2009, compared with an average growth of 16% for economic recoveries since the 1960s over the same period.

    Consumer spending accounted for about 70% of GDP in the third quarter. But Fannie Mae warned that consumer and business confidence may weaken in the coming months due to the looming fiscal cliff and debt-ceiling debate, which are likely to create significant barriers to meaningful growth.
