Two more economic indicators

Cancelled classes and seasonal hiring

A friend tells me that a class she's teaching that always fills up only has one student signed up, and will likely be cancelled.

A clerk at Barnes and Noble tells me that they aren't interviewing or hiring for the Christmas season. "We have a stack of applications this thick", she gestures with her fingers an inch apart.

This is going to be a cold winter.
