Time is running out to make a gift to Marketplace and help us meet our $100,000 fall fundraiser goal by midnight tonight.
This final note today, which comes with the observation that the government may still be shut down, but the Federal Reserve waits for no man.
The Fed came out with it’s regular regional review of the economy today: The beige book.
One little tidbit to share, because some might say it’s an interesting insight into the specificity with which the American economy is measured:
“South Dakota hotels noted that fall reservations by hunters decreased, due to a report that the number of pheasants in the state was down.”
