The Week Ahead December 14 - December 18, 2009

Tuesday: November Producers Price Index, November Industrial Production
Wednesday: Federal Reserve Meeting, November Consumer Price Index, November Housing Starts
Thursday: November Leading Economic Indicators, Weekly initial jobless claims

Larson Notes: We should be looking at good reports (again) this week. But keep a wary eye out. The congress passed a bloated budget all 1000 pages of it. Now they go back to the health care bill. I have personally figured out how we will get National Healthcare plan. If we look at what is proposed we have government health care up to 25 now, with the new bill uninsured and unemployed will be able to sign on the Medicare at 55. Then wait a few years and the govenment will squeeze that with “children” up to 30 and “seniors” down to 50.

Also on the government watch federal workers will be getting a 2% wage increase. When the private sector is doing all they can to keep themselves in business the government keeps on picking our pockets. Sorry fans, but the government does not in any way shape or form produce any kind of wealth. They suck it up.

But there was good news last week as expected, US household net worth rose 5% in the 3rd quarter. And retail sales were up higher than expected at 1.3%.

For those of you who think we really are past the recession, keep in mind that while our economy grew at 3%, the Chinese at 7% and the Indian at 7&, the German shrunk by over 5%, and Argentina, Spain, and Greece are on currency watch.

The focused industries we are looking to add clients in for the month are Advertising Specialties, Trade Show Booth Builder, Sign Shop, a Graphic Design Studio, and Printers both small and mid-sized.

We are still looking for sales persons in all areas except

the Great Plains States.
