Weak jobless claims, future economic activity data

• AP
A gauge of future economic activity and a report on unemployment benefits signaled Thursday that the recovery likely will remain weak in the coming months.

The Conference Board's index of leading economic indicators rose less in October than analysts had expected. The index forecasts activity by measuring consumer expectations, building permits and other data.

And the number of newly laid-off workers seeking unemployment benefits, unchanged last week, remains above the level that would indicate the economy is adding jobs.

What would you do, personally to help put Americans to work.  That question has not been asked because it would imply that we the people have power over the government, we do.  Would you be willing to buy made in America products?  Would you be willing to support people starting new factories to make what you use daily.  That is the first question and if you answered yes the you should be willing to go to question two!

Would you be willing to put five dollars a month into a private fund, run by people as a side line, not making any money (yet) to start a new business rebirth in America.  If the answer is yes go to Question three.

What business do you see is needed.
