…and US employers are having a harder time filling their new positions.

Ireland’s GDP has been slowing down despite a great year (while its GNP does the opposite).

Chinese disinflation paused, but industrial deflation continued uninterrupted.

The Mexican peso hit a record low against the US dollar.

US commercial crude oil stockpiles hit another record high.
