from Worcester Telegram
With no job and no credit, Irving Guzman uses his gold chains, rings and other jewelry as collateral when he needs money for groceries, gas or to make repairs on his car.

Debate Begins on Obama Consumer Protection Plan
from MSN
If only someone in government had been looking out for consumers, the subprime mortgage mess might never have happened. That theory is driving President Barack Obama's call for the creation of a new office within the federal government a Consumer Financial Protection Agency. It would be dedicated to looking out for consumers as they do mortgage, credit card and other business with financial institutions. The proposed agency, part of the most sweeping financial reform plan since the Great Depression, would take on some of the powers currently carried out by other regulators or the Federal Reserve.

Gold Rises Slightly as Dollar Broadly Drops
from Reuters
Gold futures ended slightly higher last week, losing some of their initial upward momentum based on a broadly weaker dollar, and the metal could continue to be rangebound because of weakened investment demand. The price of gold has largely moved in a broad range between $920 and $940 this week, as the combination of the resurgent dollar and easing inflation worries put a damper on bullion's rise. More

Lisa Hermosilla went into the grocery store to do some quick shopping and her husband pulled the car up to the door to pick his wife up.

Southwest Georgia Pawnshop Makes a Living Selling Guns
from Moultrie Observer
What's the most bizarre item ever pawned in Moultrie, Ga.? David Hufstetler, laughing, wondered if it was that horse he accepted five or six years ago. Or, well, perhaps the set of dentures pawned by an elderly man who pulled it out, quickly accepted $300 and still left the store smiling, toothless. More

Gold -N- Pawn
from Register-Herald
Its a great place to purchase high quality jewelry at a discount price or to get a new home theater system. Nik Dickerson, manager of Gold -N- Pawn in Beckley, W. Va., said he likes to think of the place as one that helps people. "Were basically here to help the little guy," said Dickerson.

Unemployment Probably Rose at Slower Pace
from Bloomberg
Unemployment in the U.S. probably rose at a slower pace and the manufacturing slump eased this month as evidence mounted that the end of recession is in view, economists said. The jobless rate rose 0.2 percentage point to 9.6 percent, the highest level in 26 years, according to the median of 58 estimates in a Bloomberg News survey. The gain would be the smallest since November 2008. A survey of purchasing managers may show manufacturing shrank at the mildest pace in 10 months. More
