Tuesday Trifecta (Housing, Jobs, Economy)...
So, September pending home sales drops 1.8 percent (unexpectedly... snicker).
Fannie Mae is asking for an additional $2.5 billion in federal aid. (???)
Job openings drop for the second straight month. (makes you wonder... if jobs keep getting added to the market, but unemployment remains at 9.6%, then doesn't that mean that the real unemployment number is - and has been - much, much higher?)
(via Ace): A Wall Street Journal reporter bashes Palin for stating that inflation is working it;'s way into the economy. But, of course, Palin was only quoting a report from straight out of... wait for it... the Wall Street Journal. (hehehe)
(via Daily Eudemon): The WSJ also reports on potential dissension in the ranks of the Federal Reserve and Bernanke. (Uh-oh!)
And, finally.... NOTHING TO SEE HERE!!! Just go about your daily business.
