Economists lower Brazil 2013 inflation view to 5.5 pct

SAO PAULO, Sept 17 (Reuters) - Economists trimmed their forecasts for Brazil's consumer price index next year to 5.50 percent from 5.54 percent previously after the government announced measures to slash electricity rates, a central bank survey showed on Monday.
