DJ-BTMU U.S. Business Barometer dropped -0.3%
For the week ending November 8, 2008, the DJ-BTMU U.S. Business Barometer dropped -0.3 percent extending its decline to ten straight weeks. It’s certainly no coincidence that the last time the barometer posted an increase was the week immediately preceding the collapse of Lehman Brothers. The collapse of the financial giant seemed to mark the beginning of the deep financial crisis that has thrown the world into recession.
