From the Marketplace Datebook, here’s a look at what’s coming up Friday:

  • The National Association of Realtors reports on sales of existing homes for January.
  • Where are the nation’s governors? They’re headed to Washington for the National Governors Association’s Winter Meeting.
  • It’s the anniversary of The New Yorker. The magazine was first published on February 21, 1925
  • And on February 21, 1885 the Washington Monument was dedicated in the nation’s capital. There are 897 steps inside. (And an elevator, thank god.)

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.
