CBO (Congressional Budget Office) study showing a possible recession in 2013. It can be helpful to have reporters interpet these sorts of things, and their perspectives can help one understand the situation. But it can be good to go right to the source too, and the CBO, and other government agencies and departments, are not the private preserve of enterprising reporters alone, they are freely accessible to one and all! A great place to explore the wealth of information from the U.S. government would be our research guide to the resources it offers.
And of course, for business and economics news and background, Business Source Complete and our library catalog would be excellent resources.
