...One of my favorite indicators, mentioned here back in March, is the FedEx indicator, and it is flashing bright yellow right now.  The package shipping business is a highly sensitive indicator of aggregate decisions across the economy.  Yesterday the Wall Street Journal updated the FedEx indicator with the headline: “FedEx Signals Economic Woe.”...

Not real surprising for anyone who's paying attention to retail sales numbers. Kohl's same-store numbers are limpid and in a wrong-way trend.

It's Bush's fault, of course.
