The Week Ahead January 11-15, 2010

Tuesday: November trade balance,
Wednesday: Federal Reserve beige book
Thursday: December retail sales, November business inventories, Weekly initial jobless claims
Friday: December consumer price index, December industrial production

Larson Notes & Satire: Same as last week, Jobs, jobs, jobs. The statics that came out last week did not look good for jobs, again. Same as last week, as we look deeper into the New Year there are two major areas we need to be looking at productivity and jobs. If we can put in place the jobs needed we will increase consumption which will increase demand. If we can lower taxes we can put more money in the pockets of people and businesses that will buy what we sell. If we can keep the dollar low, we can continue to market more heavily overseas, if China puts its currency in line with the world that might just put things in proper balance, but without complete worldwide pressure the Chinese will not do that. Heck why should they went things are all balanced in their directions as the increase production capability, more so than the world is able to consume and these factories are such high polluters that … well far be in for me to understand it all but if the Copenhagen accord was to work the USA could go to ZERO pollution, and I mean ZERO, none, nothing, and if the Chinese continue on their reckless pollution path, it would still overtake the world. Sorry people, I cannot be accused of being politically correct, never have, never will and I will call a spade a spade as I see it.

The Christmas buying season makes all the production statistics almost meaningless except for the December retail sales, which as low as stores kept their inventories, as well as the rest of the business, will look not too bad. Yes inventories will be low and production will be good.

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.

If interested give us a call at 847-991-0488.
