Market Update – June 15th | Leeds on Finance
Today’s update is long because there has been a lot of interesting news.  In addition, I didn’t blog on Friday.  My next blog will come out this Friday. Here’s what I read this past week. 1. A WSJ survey showed that Americans are starting to worry more about the deficit and debt problems. This ranked as the second most important priority that respondents thought that the federal government should give attention to.  It was only surpassed by job creation and economic growth.  Hopefully this will force our politicians to act.  We better get scared before investors become scared of the US. 2.

(6/2010) I Loved On Thin Ice By Hugh Rowland!
(Hyperion/Jun 2010) -- Hugh Rowland's story brought back memories of my own much more limited truck-driving experiences with whiteouts, wild animals, below-zero temperatures, 'ice-skating,' crossing the Arctic Circle, and North Pole, Alaska. On the other hand, I've never driven a truck over lake ice, and after reading Rowland's book, have no intention of doing so. Rowland, star of Ice Road Truckers, a 20+ year ice road veteran, and transporter of more ice road loads than anyone else, tells of constant loud noise from 'normal' ice popping and cracking, and the need to ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
