The Week Ahead February 15-19 2010

Monday: Only Real People are working (President’s Day)
Wednesday: January Housing Starts
Thursday: Weekly initial jobless claims, January Producers Price Index, January Leading Economic Indicators
Friday: January Consumer Price Index

If our government and its workers cared about us, they would be working today just like I am. Making America a great country as it works to achieve its true destiny of freedom for all people.

Looking at some nice statics this week as people put their heads in the sand. Don’t play ostrich. Get your head out of the sand. Keep your head up and your eyes open. As they unroll the pricing indexes and economic indicators keep an eye on your targeted industries.

Larson Notes & Satire: I just don’t understand the world. We lose jobs and the unemployment rate goes down? China tightens credit on its industrial machine and our stock market goes down. Come on people this is weird. A less productive China, a higher cost of money in China should make it better for the rest of the word to compete, yes? If China’s industrial costs go up and ours stays the same we should not only compete better but sell more? Right? If China were to realign its yen with the rest of the world’s currency making the Yen cost more and thus Chinese goods more expensive that should be good, yes? I guess there is too much blonde in the grey hair of mine.

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.
