    Recession risks recede: Conference Board - Economic Report - MarketWatch


    Friday, as its index of leading economic indicators grew 0.9% in October — the largest growth since February — led by gains in building permits.

    The index “is pointing to continued growth this winter, possibly even gaining a little momentum by spring,” said Ken Goldstein, a Conference Board economist, in a statement. He added that relatively low consumer confidence has been “the biggest obstacle in generating forward momentum.”



    Economists polled by MarketWatch had expected growth of 0.7%. The Conference Board revised September’s result down to 0.1% growth from a prior estimate of 0.2% gain.

    The LEI is a weighted gauge of 10 indicators that are designed to signal business-cycle peaks and troughs.

    October’s result suggests persistent strong economic activity, said Millan Mulraine, TD Securities’ economics strategist.

    “On the whole, this report underscores the positive tone of the recent flow of economic reports pointing to a meaningful pick-up in overall economic activity during the quarter,”

    One day this country will again have a republican party ( or another party to replace the dead republican party) that places country over partisan bullshit.

    That will be a good day and we who love this country will rejoyce

    More "someday things will get better" bullshit from TM. Why did you not just post this in your other thread?

    I heard about your spelling idiosyncrasies but I never imagined they were that bad.

    Democrat is spelled d-e-m-o-c-r-a-t. Not r-e-p-u-b-l-i-c-a-n.


    lol - just kidding - there's plenty of partisan bullshit on both sides. You represent it well.

    Just wondering when we will have a democratic party that places individual rights and responsibility over nanny government bullshit?

    That will be an even greater day and we who love liberty will rejoice.

    Well the democrats sure as helldon't put country over partisan bullshit, otherwise they woulda accepted the repub offer of 300 billion in revenue as a good first step towards resolving the gridlock. But no, they peremptorily shot it down for purely political reasons. As you no doubt know, Obama and the Dems have absolutely nothing to run on if the tax issue is off the table.

    the majority should not have to bow to the minority in a democracy.

    I wish you cared about this country more than your party and enjoyed the fact we are starting to make real economic progress

    Oh we do care. Far more then you and yours do. You insist on passing environmental laws that are proven to not work (and in some cases like the MTBE debacle in CA cause MORE damage then the original problem) and are also proven to destroy jobs and send them overseas.

    You really need to look in the mirror there truthiness.
