A Podcasting Wall Street Journal !
By MortazaviBlog on Sep 30, 2005
The Wall Street Journal, as a 30 minute summary, every day!
It is not as in-depth as the articles but it gives a quick review for the professional on the run. The big shortcoming is that the podcast lingers longer on the soft side of the news, a la Dow Jones' magazine Smart Money.
For RSS feeds of other WSJ podcasts, see here. I'm afraid an online subscription is required.
The big news on the paper today had to do with a drop in personal income and consumer spending!
The Journal reports that "[C]onsumer spending in August fell by $47.2 billion, or 0.5%, marking the largest drop since Nov. 2001."
Economists are attributing the declines to cooling auto sales and high energy prices "siphoning potential sales away from other spending categories." Some are worried that this "could slow the economy if prices continue to rise."
