This Week in the Economy

by CoyDavidson on May 4, 2012

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics released the April jobs report and just as the U.S. economy experienced payroll softening in spring 2011, the same thing seems to be happening yet again in 2012. U.S. stocks fell on Friday and for the week spurred by the weaker than expected jobs report. The S&P 500 fell 2.3% over the week, posting its biggest weekly decline of the year. The Dow lost 1.3% and the Nasdaq fell 3.7%.

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