Bureau of Economic Activity "Advance" Q3 2010 Estimate To Be Delayed?

~or, I Don't Put It Past Them ~

Mish quotes an article on the way to making a different point, but catch this: " . . . the BEA's "advance" estimate for Q3 2010 might be brutal, just 4 days before the U.S. mid-term election."

Make that, it might be brutal the week after the mid-term. You know, when some excuse or other comes along to delay the report so you don't quite notice the Great Recession is still well underway and blame the Democrats -who are causing it- at the ballot box. I don't know who runs the BEA, but it wouldn't surprise me one little bit to see just such shenanigans pulled. Would it really surprise you?
