ABSTRACT
The article reports that, the Institute for Supply Management's non-manufacturing business activity composite index fell more than analysts expected, dropping to 58.2% in August, from 64.8% in July, on a seasonally adjusted basis, the group said on Friday. Economists polled by IFR BondData America had expected a 63.3% level. An index reading below 50% signals a slowing economy, while a level above 50% suggests expansion. The prices paid index, closely watched for signs of inflation, dipped to 70.0% from 73.1%. The employment index gained to 52.5% from 50.0%.
