In the coming weeks, I will be closing the forum and creating a new page dedicated to economic statistics. It will update with my weekly postings on economic data. Currently, I am looking at weekly jobless claims, the monthly employment numbers (jobs and unemployment rate), GDP growth, consumer prices (inflation), and producer prices. If you have any other economic indicators to suggest, please pass them along.
Additionally, I am looking at creating a new page about the bailouts and the companies surrounding them. I would give updates on Fannie/Freddie, GM/Chrysler, AIG, and any other institutions running on government funds. Let me know if you would like me to add anything else.
Ideally, I want this site to become a resource for statistics along with a lobby to defending the free market.
Please reply to this post with any suggestions you might have.
