relax – i got this

Michigan, July 2010

CNN: The number of Americans filing for initial unemployment insurance dropped to the lowest level in nearly two years last week … the number of claims was much lower than expected … Craig Thomas, senior economist at PNC Financial Services: “It looks like now we’re creating jobs at a pace that will actually put a dent in the unemployment rate.”

The U.S. Senate today passed a sweeping bank regulation bill that will make major changes to the U.S. financial system. The legislation cracks down on banks and Wall Street in the hopes of avoiding another major financial meltdown. The bill has been President Obama’s top domestic priority after the passage of health care legislation.
