    MEXICO CITY, Sept 22 (Reuters) - Mexico's jobless rate fell
in August, pointing to stronger domestic consumption as Latin
America's No. 2 economy picks up some speed after a weak start
to the year. 
    Mexico's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate was 4.87
percent in August, the national statistics agency said on
Monday, down from a 5.16 percent rate in July.
    Economists expect Mexican economic growth to pick up to
about 2.5 percent this year from a 1.4 percent rate in 2013.
