Today's Economic Data Docket - Wholesale Inventories, No POMO, Speeches And Government Shutdown

Tyler Durden's picture




 

A quiet data calendar to close the week, as eyes are now focused away from Europe and on the hill. Futures are up, commodities are surging, as the dollar destruction continues. There is no POMO.
 
8:00: Atlanta Fed President Dennis Lockhart speaks on the economic outlook.
Q&A scheduled. Mr. Lockhart is not currently a voting member of the FOMC.
 
10:00: Wholesale inventories (February):
Another gain. Wholesale inventories are not a market mover, but they can affect out “bean count” model of current quarter GDP. Higher commodity prices may lift nominal inventory growth for some wholesalers.
Median forecast (of 32): +1.0%; last +1.1%.
 
10:15: Dallas Fed President Richard Fisher on monetary and fiscal policy
. Q&A scheduled. Mr. Fisher is a voting member of the FOMC this year.

if the debt ceiling cannot be raised, and the government shutdown is prolonged, will obama declare emergency powers and let bernanke crank the printing press to directly fund government obligations in lieu of selling treasuries? 

 

is that the keynesian endgame?

As far as the Government shutdown... I remember the one during Clinton... and honestly, unless you worked in the government, not a single fuck was given. If they stop paying the troops... I say, put down your guns boys, pack up your shit, and come home. No pay, no imperialism for you B.H.O. Come to think of it, perhaps all US corporations should pay the wages of our military. Let he/she who profits from war, foot the bill.

The UNITED STATES CORPORATION is insolvent, as is the Federal Reserve.

The end of corporations posing as legitimate government. Lawful government has returned to the people.

Japan had a big earthquake and the Nikkei is up nearly 2%. If we have a 9.5 hit on California today, we should break 13,500!

INFLATION FACT: My very close friend works for one of, if not THE largest food wholesaler within the USA. While food did go up on the wholesale level on many products Jan 1 (2011) to the tune of ~4%, the notice just came out that MANY food items are going up next week at the wholesale level from 4% to over 10% per item.

Also, there was an alert that some products will be changing their container size, generally keeping height and width yet cutting down on the depth (remember, shelving space is set for size, yet depth can easily be dealt with in retail locations). Again, this is FACT and coming from one of, if not THE largest food wholesaler in the USA.
