Why Read: Because those who operate business may well (read likely) have a better understanding of what is going on in their respective segments of the economy than do those who write in the mainstream media and on the Internet.

Featured Article: An article last week reported on a recently conducted survey that ended June 5. The article says that "Canadian executives are sitting on cash and bracing themselves for higher financing costs, worried that turmoil in Europe will spill over into North America in the months ahead". The article further reports that of the executives surveyed:

All that said, more than 80% of executives polled think the Canadian economy will expand in the next year, and 71% think the U.S. economy has improved and will experience modest growth (time frame not stated).

Commentary: So what does all that mean:

Europe's woes have Canadian firms holding on to cash
