Rethinking The Meaning Of Labor Day
Accept and embrace it: summer is almost over. After all, Labor Day is next week and doesn’t that mean it’s time to get back to work, stop going to the pool, and start planning winter vacation? Doesn’t it mean a last barbecue, a neighborhood softball game, and a final long weekend before autumn arrives? But what about celebrating “Labor”? Isn’t it called “Labor Day”? Forbes

One of the welcome results of the U.S. energy boom is that light, sweet crude from places previously untapped is becoming increasingly available and its presence can drive discounts on the nation’s benchmark crude, West Texas Intermediate, depending on where it’s going. Texas makes that happen. Tom Kloza, GasBuddy’s chief petroleum analyst, recently reported that “the discounted WTI comes in the Permian Basin where the West Texas Intermediate crude near Midland sold numerous times for double-digit discounts.” US News & World Report

The Trouble With Travel
Yesterday American Airlines (AAL) and their recent acquisition US Airways, in a move that will have shocked those who have spent the last five years under a rock, announced that they would no longer be listing their flights and fares on Orbitz (OWW). Okay, so the sarcasm may be a little overdone, but this is just the latest in a long-running dispute between the online booking agent and the giant carrier. The airline first pulled their flights from the site in 2010, prompting a legal battle that American lost. This time, though, it may be different. nasdaq.com

And it is a revolution, as this manufacturing surge that began in 2007 continues to break records year after year in the total number of large, capital intensive projects. One factor, of course, is that reshoring of facilities back to the U.S. continues to grow each year.
