Some of the things I’m reading this morning:

  • ECRI says that recession is already here (247 Wall Street)
  • Hedge funds performance sucks (Reuters)
  • Bullish on Visa & MasterCard (Sizemore Insights)
  • Wall Street is short on ethics? Really?  I guess we need a report to tell us this (dealbook)
  • Mark Zandi calculates the impact of going off the ‘fiscal cliff’ (economix)
  • Governor too embarrassed to say which state he leads (the onion)
