Some evening reads
Some evening reads, with pictures this time:
Calculated Risk - comments on Q3 GDP.
Reuters Data Dive - US Q3 GDP. They point out most of the 3.6% came on inventory buildup. Then again, what's supposed to happen once the interest rate curve steepens? I assume people are supposed to start buying that inventory.

Reuters Data Dive - four charts from the most important jobs report you don't follow.
der Spargel - Africa's digital revolution. It gives them a heck of a leg up to not have to lay millions of km of cable. Now all they need is a hyper-local electricity generation system.
