How Wall-Street Hocus-Pocus Inflates S&P 500 Revenues. Despite what you might think, there’s a difference between our financial markets and casinos in Las Vegas: casinos aren’t rigged.
In a casino, the odds are officially against you. You know what they are, and you subject yourself to them – statistically speaking – to lose money … while having a blast.

Recession Watch: Inventory Glut, Iffy Consumer Demand Sink US Freight Volume. Worst March, worst first quarter since 2010.
The goods-based economy in the US, largely dependent on the previously irrepressible but now strung-out American consumer, isn’t doing so well. To what extent things have deteriorated shows up in the freight data. Freight shipments in March fell 1.5% in terms of volume from the already terribly low levels of March 2015, according to the Cass Freight Index. It has been an awful year so far.
