U.S. economy shrank 1.5% in first quarter


The U.S. Commerce Department released a report on May 26, local time, saying that from January to March, the U.S. economy shrank by 1.5% at an annual rate. Part of the reason for the shrinking economy is a larger trade deficit, with the U.S. spending more on imports than it earns on exports, according to U.S. economists. Another reason for the weaker economy is that U.S. stores and warehouses were slow to restock last quarter and supplies were tight.
