One former president passes away--and others plan to run for the office. As the U.S. mourns the passing of Gerald Ford---former senator John Edwards is expected to announce his second bid for the White House on Thursday ( he chose tomorrow sometime ago.) We'll have a look at the Edwards' economic plan--he's considered a "populist" by some and a "tireless advocate for the poor" by others. Newsweek's Senior White House Correspondent Richard Wolffe will be on "Power Lunch" to talk about Edwards and his chances for 2008.
And--the U.S. housing market is showing some up and down signs of recovery--but how is corporate real estate doing? Bruce Mosler is President and CEO of Cushman & Wakefield and he'll be on "Street Signs" with his outlook. Also on "Street Signs" we'll continue our look at air pollution "myths" with Ed Hopkins of the Sierra Club and David Kotock of Cumberland Advisors.
Of course--we'll cover all the breaking stories from CNBC-TV--including the U.S. crude oil inventories report coming out around 10:30 am local time. And back to housing--the existing U.S. home sales report--coming out around the same time.
