MSNBC: The auto industry is seeing significant job growth.
Reuters: China claims that it will decrease state support for industries like high speed rail and wind. (We’re not holding our breath here.)
WaPo: Men are faring better in the “recovery” than women. One reason: cuts in state employees impacting women more, and hiring in manufacturing benefiting men.
NYT: Is there a real estate bubble in China?
USAT: China raises interest rates to try to cool inflation. (China could raise the value of the Yuan and accomplish the same thing, by the way.)
WSJ: Infrastructure: Senate Democrats look at keeping funding level for a highway bill; House Republicans propose to cut spending by one-third.
HBR: Manufacturing must be hot: even the elitist Aspen Ideas Festival has a panel on the topic.
