:) Hello Everyone,

I am wondering whether the phrase in the tapescript is wrong?


[FONT=&#23435]Economic output was 2.4 percent higher in the third quarter, the modest increase in the gross national product was spurred primarily by 42 billion dollar surge in consumer spending. More than half of that is [/FONT][FONT=&#23435]the [/FONT][FONT=&#23435]result of increased car sales. Analysit warned that cosusmers may [/FONT][FONT=&#23435]have[/FONT][FONT=&#23435] spent more than expected last quarter, which could lead [/FONT][FONT=&#23435]to[/FONT][FONT=&#23435] weak demand in the next two quarters.Real GNP [/FONT][FONT=&#23435]in adjusted [/FONT][FONT=&#23435]1982 dollars, rose to more than 3 and a half trillion dollars.[/FONT]


If right, what does the underlined mean? :)


Regards

Sky
