I actually enjoy reading about “The Beige Book,” the Federal Reserve’s regular look at regional slices of the American economy.
I know this makes me sound incredibly dull, but bear with me.
The latest installment came out today, and so we know (thanks to The Wall Street Journal):
– Theme-park attendance in and around the Atlanta region was soft, because family vacations were delayed due to snow-day makeups at the end of the school year.
– Aerospace manufacturers near San Francisco are worried about titanium supplies, because of sanctions on Russia.
– A mildew outbreak in North Dakota may reduce sunflower yields. My personal favorite.
C’mon… fascinating, right?
