Good morning. The weak recovery of the US consumer in historical perspective.

And even more on Robots and Jobs

Best of last week. Almost all of it…

Investments! But let me guess: in the wrong industry, right?

And still Obama is not as popular as Reagan was! 🙂

And this is the underlying trend in jobs

Flows. They tell a lot about the past… A lot less about the future

Cool. Does the opposite apply for the euro though?

A special report by the Financial Times on New Africa (firewall)

Wow. look how low Atheist rank in the US!

Interesting chart showing what consumer consider the biggest problems right now. Inflation is a big worry..?

Cool breakdown of bond flows by the IMF from the report called: “Emerging Markets volatility: lessons from the taper tantrum”

Europe is slipping…

And as always, the schedules for the week to come.
