An NBA lockout could hurt its ability to compete with the MLB and NFL. BofA CEO Brian Moynihan has his work cut out for him. Obama’s jobs plan might not be so realistic after all. Consumer spending at everywhere from Best Buy to Cracker Barrel is down this quarter, and “corn sugar” battles for equality.
