Demand for U.S. durable goods "unexpectedly fell" in August, signaling companies are planning to curb spending on concern gains in sales will not be sustained. Durable Goods Orders in U.S. Unexpectedly Decreased (Update3) - Bloomberg.com Orders for goods meant to least several years dropped 2.4 percent, the worst performance since January, the Commerce Department said today in Washington.
