I know, I know, I'm quoting another email alert from Fox Business News, but hey, even a stopped clock is right twice a day. Besides, we all trust Fox the way we would our own best friends. And by best friends I mean prison inmates.
But I digress.
Did I mention there was some good economic news today? Did you see any of this reported by the "mainstream" news media? Hey, me neither!
A-a-and we're off!
The American private sector added 215,000 jobs in November, according to a report from payroll processor ADP. Economists expected a slimmer gain of 173,000.
The Commerce Department reports sales of new, single-family homes jumped 25.4% in October from the month before to an annual rate of 444,000 units, topping expectations of a 428,000-unit rate. The spike was the biggest since 1980.
