Busy Week for Economic Data

There is an interesting article in Business Insider today.  It provides a daily listing of the economic data announcements, central bank meetings, and so on for the week. It will be a busy week, indeed.  The first Friday of the month is usually a big deal with the employment report from the Dept. of Labor. Given the tepid GDP growth for the first quarter, I expect the employment numbers will not be great.
Given all that is going on in Europe, the article also highlights a few European items.  There, the big one may be the French election on Sunday.  If Hollande wins, there will be increased tension in the French-German relationship in the EU.

  1. Economics Development is a process whereby an economy’s real National Income Increases over a long period of time, and if the rate of development is greater than the rate of population growth, then pre capital real income will increase. Banks are the custodians and distributors of liquid capital which is the life blood of our commercial and industrial activities.
