NEW YORK (Reuters) - Goldman Sachs economist Kris Dawson said on Wednesday he scaled back his view of U.S. growth in the first quarter, following an unexpectedly weak report on domestic durable goods orders in February.

Dawson wrote in a research note that he reduced the tracking estimate on the U.S. gross domestic product in the first quarter to 1.8 percent from 2.0 percent.
