    "Vel, vi bare hadde en av disse ukene her på Walmart U.S. Hvor er alle kundene? Og hvor er deres penger? " På fredag, Bloomberg utgitt et par interne e-post fra Wal-Mart ledere panikk om selskapets verste salg start i sju år, "en total katastrofe," som en putte den. Execs tilskrevet lønn skatt fottur som sparket på januar 1, kutte median familiens take - home lønn ved ca $1000 i år Wal-Marts nedgangen. Så hvis du sliter med Wal-Mart, betyr det at alle andre bør bekymre? Det er to måter å se på dette. Først er at dette er en forferdelig tegn. Wal-Mart utgjør en stor del av den amerikanske økonomien-2,3 prosent av BNP i 2006-som mange analytikere ser på det som en nøkkel bellwether. Matt Stoller skrev en glimrende post i fjor på dette emnet: På grunn av sin skala og bemerkelsesverdig mengden data har selskapet faktisk mer detaljert data om økonomi enn de fleste makro-økonomiske prognosemakere.

    Those roles have made Utsler well-known across the Gulf, and by virtue of his regular visits with people in the Gulf and beyond — presenting updates on BP's progress in restoration efforts and lending a friendly ear — Utsler has earned a reputation for listening carefully and transforming feedback into action.
