The U.S. gross domestic product shrank for the first time in three and a half years in the fourth quarter of 2012, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce. GDP declined at an annual rate of 0.1% in the fourth quarter as companies pared back their inventories, government spending declined by 15%, and the fiscal cliff discussions dragged on.
