Commerce Department, Heads up What?
Just a quick observation. Head to the commerce department's web site and try to find the latest economic figures quickly.
Not happening, right? Nope, but we do have plenty o' propaganda, including a pretty ludicrous "tariff counter" puporting to show the amount of moolah lost on U.S. tariffs on good sent to Colombia because Congress hasn't approved a trade deal with them.
I have no real opinion on the trade deal, but I think that, given the TRILLIONS that are disappearing every day in our funky markets, and the hundreds of billions being wasted on poorly-planned bailouts of greedy and incompetent institutions, the commerce department could put aside the infantile political posturing and provide U.S. citizens with a better path to the facts and figures that matter.
