My Bush Boom Is Not A Durable Good

From Holden:

All eceonomic signs continue to point downward.

New orders for U.S.-made durable goods fell a much greater-than-expected 2.4 percent in July as civilian aircraft and car orders tumbled, a government report showed on Thursday.

It was the first decline in orders for durable goods, items built to last three years or longer, in three months, a report by the Commerce Department said. Analysts polled by Reuters were expecting durable goods orders to fall by 0.5 percent.
