The Economy This Week

- by New Deal democrat

Welcome back from your weekend! While Bonddad's enjoying himself on vacation this week, we won't leave you uninformed.

There's not much on the economic calendar today, but beginning tomorrow, we get reports on producer and consumer inflation, industrial production, business inventories, housing starts, initial jobless claims, retail sales (which I'll argue may be the most important release of all), and Federal reserve economic surveys in the New York and Philadelphia regions.

I'm not sure what Invictus may have planned, but in addition to the above, I plan to continue my series asking, "When will the economy add jobs?" hopefully beginning later today.
