Have an interesting chart, table, graph, or statistic that conveys an interesting fact about Delaware or your industry? Please email those to me. In 2021 I’ll be adding this feature to my weekly message. So, just how many chickens are processed in Delaware each day? How is your healthcare dollar broken up? What amount of out-of-state money comes from franchise taxes and escheat to fund state government each year? I promise to keep this interesting and fun and not treat you to a high school civics class!
As you would expect, this is a very light week for economic reporting and news with many businesses closed Thursday and Friday. That said, a few important data points are on tap this week, including today's release of the Chicago Fed national activity index for November. On Tuesday, we’ll see November figures for existing home sales and wrap up the week on Wednesday with November durable goods orders, personal income, consumer spending and core inflation data.
