BuilderBytes for 9/12/2011

In a new feature for BuilderBytes, the twice-weekly newsletter emailed to over 100,000 subscribers from Peninsula Publishing, I am now going to be covering recent economic statistics released through various sources since the last edition.

This latest feature is an extension of my current relationship as a regular columnist for the publisher's flagship title, Builder & Developer magazine. I had been wanting to create a regular newsletter that was different from the others which currently fill your inbox(es) for some time, and since BuilderBytes was in the middle of being re-designed, this was the perfect opportunity to begin my new contribution.

Entitled the "MetroIntelligence Economic Update," the purpose of the new section is to provide one-stop shopping for updates on the U.S. economy in terms of unemployment, housing, auto sales, consumer confidence, mortgage applications, etc. so you can react in real time for your own businesses. Each issue will include brief summaries of the update along with a link to the original source.

Please click here to see the edition for 9/12/2011 on the Web. In this issue, I cover economist Mark Zandi's review of the Obama jobs plan, unemployment claims, the U.S. trade deficit, consumer credit and wholesale inventories.
