More Economic Good News 

While the Institute for Supply Managers non-manufacturing survey doesn't carry the weight of their manufacturing report, it still has good news for the month of January, with perhaps a hint of a warning of inflation. Pretty much all the measures of activity are over 50, indicating growth. New orders, employment, backlogs all continued to grow.
