Editor Allan Leibowitz comments on the news of the week

Planning folk at the forklift manufacturers have their work cut out because not only are they dealing with volatility, they are also flying blind since there's a delay before they hear about the possible impacts on their customers. Ironically, the financial troubles come as many major companies report positive trends, but that optimism may not be enough to overcome the stock crashes.
