  • Weakest increase in U.S. manufacturing output since January [View news story]
    I'm sure. Cheap gas and strong dollar - it will be interesting to how this Christmas season turns out. Also add the thousands of temps stores are hiring - it will be interesting if enough people will want to take on the extra work for a few more dollars.

  • The Stock Market And The US Economy: Where Are They Going? Up! [View article]
    Having had two parents that lived through the Great Depression - thank goodness the FED stepped in. Things may have been bad during the Great Recession, but nowhere near as bad as the Depression.

  • Weighing The Week Ahead: What Does The End Of QE Mean To The Individual Investor? [View article]
