(Worthy News) - The economy is on everyone's mind this week as fears about a possible recession continue to capture headlines. Now, the Bureau of Labor Statistics has released some revised employment numbers showing 500,000 fewer jobs were created than initially reported.

Meanwhile, the tariff showdown with China continues to weigh on the minds of some investors. [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ]
