New Orders
New orders for manufactured durable goods in October decreased $1.0 billion 
or 0.6 percent to $166.2 billion, the U.S. Census Bureau announced today. 
This was the second monthly decrease in the last three months. This followed 
a 2.0 percent September increase.

Excluding transportation, new orders decreased 1.3 percent. Excluding 
defense, new orders increased 0.4 percent.

Machinery, down following two consecutive monthly increases, had the largest 
decrease, $1.9 billion or 8.0 percent to $21.8 billion.


So let's see-- Financial corporations garner 95% of 3Q domestic profits in 
the US.  Durable goods orders, particularly machinery, decrease.

What was it Marx said about the bourgeoisie in The 18th Brumaire?  "To get 
rich not by producing wealth but by pocketing the already produced wealth of 
others"-- something like that.

The modern version is,  "To get rich not by pocketing the already produced 
wealth of other but by liquidating the already pocketed wealth of others."
