    Dollar rises on signs US economy is improving



    NEW YORK (AP) — The dollar rose against most major currencies Wednesday on signs that the U.S. economy is slowly getting better.

    The Federal Reserve said that industrial production rose 0.6 percent last month as factories made more cars, computers and airplanes. That's a sign that manufacturing is slowly recovering.

    Imagine if TruthMocker was honest, and not just a political hack.

    No, nor can I.
