Dow Falls below 10,000 One year ago, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was over 14,000. Today, despite final package of the so-called " economic rescue ," it dropped below 10,000 for the first time in four years. In Texas, meantime, President Bush met with small business owners—a car dealer, a car repair-shop owner and two restaurateurs. Adrienne Carter is finance editor for BusinessWeek magazine.
The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement. With James Comey’s public testimony scheduled tomorrow, the President today tweeted his selection of a new FBI Director. Is the Chief Executive all style and no substance? Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
