  • 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.

    It is still an increase, not a contraction.

  • 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]
    I lived through an era of 13% mortgage rates, so I see a climb of 1/2% or even 1% a bit comical.

  • Jobless Claims +3K to 287K [View news story]
    bbro -

    Always enjoy your insight. Lots of talk about an increase in the amount of seasonal hiring for the holidays - I'm curious as to how the increase in cash (coupled with low gas prices) will effect the holiday spending.

  • Janet Yellen Is Wrong About The Cause Of Wealth Inequality [View article]
    Good reply. I grew up in the 60's and 70's when the common man viewed the stock market as a casino and there were no 401k's where they could even come in contact with the market. It was all CD's and savings accounts in my family.
    What about CEO's pays skyrocketing - 200x the rate of their underlings rather than the 20x a few decades ago.
    Why did the disparity shrink under Clinton with higher taxes on the rich and a booming stock market?

    Truckers add a fuel surcharge to their flat rates for shipping - lower fuel prices will help anyone's bottom line who need to move their goods.
