Friday screencast: taking note
- June 3rd, 2011
Today’s non-farm payroll numbers were an unmitigated disappointment to anyone looking for some strength in the US economy. Economic numbers have been coming in below expectations for some time now. This raises a number of questions including whether the US economy is headed for another recession or just a slowdown in growth? The second question is whether US authorities are out of levers to pull if the economy slows materially. Lastly, when will the stock market pick up on signs of slowing growth? In today’s screencast we take a look at the economy as it heads into the Summer.
