Fed Beige Book: The report paints a more optimistic picture of the economy than much of the recent data. Growth continues at a moderate pace in all districts with just Philadelphia reporting a slowing in the rate of expansion. Residential real estate activity improved in most districts, although the recovery remains fragile.

    I sometimes wonder what people thought was going to happen after a second Depression? Especially while most lawmakers are too busy touting ideology and jockeying for elections to come to a necessary balance of measures to help get the economy moving a bit more rapidly while also cutting debt.

    Seriously, does anyone who glanced at the beige book really believe what the FED reported? Yea, smoke and mirrors. Guess no QE on June 20 if all is well.
