More Beige Book: Office markets showed signs of softening in the northeast, with New York remarking on a substantial amount of new supply coming online. Employment conditions were little changed during the month (don't tell that to the BLS). The energy sector (oil and gas) remains a bright spot for the Minneapolis, Kansas City, and Dallas districts, but not so much for Cleveland (coal).

  • Uh, there is no way there were signs of softening. Uncle Ben is doing QE3, so there is no way we can be slowing. The money wont let us slow down!
