Business today
TRADE DEFICT NARROWS: The U.S. trade deficit shrank in the second quarter to its lowest level in more than a year. The Commerce Department reported that the deficit in the current account narrowed to $106.5-billion in the April-June quarter, a 4.7 percent drop from the first three months of this year. The current account is considered the best measurement of a country's international economic standing because it measures not just the goods and services reflected in the government's monthly trade reports, but also investment flows between countries and unilateral transfers, including U.S. foreign aid payments.
