The economy grew at three percent or more for the second-straight quarter, the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) announced on Friday.

It’s the first time the economy has grown at this rate in two consecutive quarters since 2014, when the economy grew at more than four percent in quarters two and three of 2014.
