News Summary: US durable goods orders up
By The Associated Press
BUSINESS INVESTMENT SLOWS: Orders that signal business investment plans edged up just 0.2 percent. That followed 3 percent gains in November and October.
OUTLOOK: Business investment rebounded at the end of 2012 after slowing earlier in the year. Most economists expect demand to weaken again this year, mostly because Americans are paying higher Social Security payroll taxes without much gain in wages.
