This Week in the Economy

by CoyDavidson on January 6, 2012

The big economic news  for the week was the December jobs report but despite a stronger than expected labor report, U.S. stocks ended mostly lower on Friday. For the week, the Dow edged up 0.6%, the S&P 500 added 1.1% and the Nasdaq gained 2.3%. On the commercial real estate front, REIS reported office vacancies declined in the fourth quarter of 2011 which was also the case for the Houston Office Market.

Below are links to the top economics news for the week:
