It is that time of the year again when the world's central bankers gather together in Wyoming to sort out the economic conditions of the global economy. This year most bankers will be looking at labor growth, or lack thereof, and what to do about it.

In this country we have seen some surprising gains in the employment picture this year despite a less than stellar economic growth rate. Unemployment has dropped from above 7 percent to 6.2 percent in less than a year. Fed officials are somewhat pleasantly puzzled by that performance. FOMC members are watching things like how many part-time jobs are being filled versus full-time positions. They are also looking for hints of wage growth

Popcorn Column
by Michael S. Goldberger  
  Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) learns about the joys and dangers inherent in humanity from his society's memory archive, Jeffrey Bridges, in 'The Giver.'

The good thing about the apocalypse, if you happen to survive it, is that the society that then evolves is so nice and orderly … everything in its place, y'know. No anger, competition, hunger, strife or pestilence. Boy, they sure learned their lesson. And gee, all the architecture is so neo-Guggenheim museum.

The bad thing is, it's a stultifying bore. Which is why Brenton Thwaites' Jonas, the starry-eyed

Outgunned, outmanned and outfinanced, terrorists should be logically on the losing end of any combat engagement. And yet,   they exist and sometimes flourish despite the odds. Much of their success can be attributed to cash, the life blood of any army, and their increasingly sophisticated method of raising it.

Terrorists today would like you to think that they thrive because their cause is just. It plays well with the foreign media but the truth is that they have developed a sophisticated global fund-raising system that utilizes everything from Internet appeals to directly tapping into some country's defense budgets.

This can't possibly be the last weekend before Labor Day weekend ... can it?

Boy, the summer flew by, especially with the kiddos out of school so late. There was hardly any "Mom, I'm bored" time at all. (Hope I didn't just jinx myself for next week!)

But with another nice weekend on the horizon, there's still time to enjoy some summer fun.

If you don't mind a little drive, the epitome of summer fun is happening just over the mountain to our east in Cummington: the 146th annual Cummington Fair. The fair actually starts tonight, Thursday, Aug. 21, and runs Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 22-24, though this weekend's weather looks better than tonight or

Generally, you feel better – more confident – when you’re sporting a new look. Sometimes, even the smallest changes can make a big difference in your attitude.

Doesn’t your investment plan deserve the same kind of attention? After all, someday it’s going to be taking care of you! Perhaps your portfolio is overweighted in stocks. Maybe you’d like to spice up your portfolio with commodities. Whatever you have in mind, it’s always a good move to regularly review your investments and make decisions about your financial strategies.

A typical annual review compares your portfolio's annual performance against broad benchmarks such as the S&P 500
