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

  • In Washington, the Commerce Department reports on sales of new homes for January.
  • A Senate Committee discusses “Retirement Savings for Low-Income Workers.”
  • His name is synonymous with jeans. Levi Strauss was born in Bavaria on February 26, 1829. Did he have any idea what a fashion statement jeans would become?
  • And singer-songwriter Johnny Cash was born on February 26, 1932. The man in black would have been 82.
