Sorry this is up late...Drosselmeyer? Really? Lots of prices today, but I didn't cash a ticket. Should have stayed home and posted What Mattered This Week instead.
The economy as always, with the jobs report numbers, the Fed meeting, and Europe all important.
Did the Herman Cain scandal matter? Well, those of us who did not consider him a plausible nominee didn't believe that Cain's wild week significantly affected his chances of becoming President of the United States. It certainly dominated reporting on the GOP race for a week to this point, with no real sign that it's going away for at least several more days -- and given that we're not all that far from Iowa and New Hampshire, it's possible that it might have some second-order effects on those states.
What do you think mattered this week?
