Here’s an extended look at the Marketplace Datebook for the week of Jun 16:
We begin with Monday, everyone’s favorite day of the week. In Washington, the Federal Reserve reports on industrial production for May.
The State Department hosts a two-day “Our Ocean” conference on protecting the vast bodies of water that cover almost three quarters of our planet.
And in Michigan on June 16th, 1903, Ford Motor Company was incorporated.
Start thinking about broccoli, beets and carrots. Tuesday is Eat Your Vegetables Day. Don’t argue with me.
The Commerce Department tells us how many new homes were built in May.
On Wednesday, a Senate Committee holds a hearing on “Aggressive E-Cigarette Marketing and Potential Consequences for Youth.”
The Federal Reserve wraps up a two-day meeting on interest rates and the economy.
Then we slow down on Thursday … maybe wear something fetching for World Sauntering Day.
Just in time to ruin your summer fun, “Jaws” was released to movie-going audiences June 20, 1975.
And finally, Friday is Take Your Dog to Work Day. Yeah, do that. (And don’t go into the water.)
