8. Solid US Job Gains Could Bolster Second-Half Growth -

WASHINGTON (AP) – Robust hiring in July would mark a fourth straight month of solid gains, an encouraging sign for a U.S. economy that is still struggling with high unemployment.

Economists predict that employers added 183,000 jobs – a figure that would show that businesses are growing more confident despite weak economic growth. More jobs would boost consumers' ability to spend, allowing for stronger growth in the second half of the year.

9. Better Economic Growth Likely to Follow Weak Second Quarter -

WASHINGTON (AP) – The economy is expected to have grown at a dismal pace in the April-June quarter, weighed down by large tax increases and steep government spending cuts.

There was a brief time last year when it looked like 2013 would be that rare political creature in Memphis politics – an off-election year.
