State fairs - with their deep fried butter on a stick, presidential candidates chowing down on footlong corn dogs, and sadly this past weekend's tragedy at the Indiana State Fair - make national news. County fairs, however, barely make local news. There's not even a Cook County Fair.
For all of us who have bought milk or Corn Flakes lately, the most relevant economic news this week will likely be data on prices. Both the consumer price index and the producer price index come out this week.
